I’m delighted to have been appointed a ‘Friend of the Neville Lawrence Foundation – Education‘ which was launched on the 22nd of April by the father of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence to mark the 21st anniversary of his son’s death. I will post more on these pages as the Foundation starts its work in educating young people about the dangers of racism and xenophobia.
Neville Lawrence, the leading campaigner for racial harmony also received his signed copy of Caribbean Volunteers at War.
The venue was a luncheon hosted by The Voice newspaper in London. A second copy was passed along to Baroness Doreen Lawrence, Stephen’s mother.
