About this Event: 7pm Thursday 22nd April 2021
Stephen Lawrence was born and grew up in south-east London, where he lived with his parents Neville and Doreen, his brother Stuart and sister Georgina.
On 22 April 1993, at the age of just 18, Stephen was murdered in an unprovoked racist attack. He didn’t know his killers and his killers didn’t know him.
A public inquiry into the handling of Stephen’s case was held in 1998, leading to the publication of the Macpherson Report, which has been called ‘one of the most important moments in the modern history of criminal justice in Britain’.
Join us in this virtual event to commemorate and celebrate the life and legacy of Stephen.
Hear from speakers from Derbyshire Constabulary, the Black Police Association and the Police and Crime Commissioners Office on how Stephen’s story changed Policing and British Society today and what lessons were learnt.
There will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered on policing in Derbyshire.
Supporters / allies of all ethnicities welcome.
