Liz visits the Stephen Lawrence Centre at DMU

I was delighted to visit the Stephen Lawrence centre at De Montfort University recently.

It was incredibly moving to walk through the timeline of Stephen’s case, which explained what happened on the night of his murder up to the present day. It also includes artefacts – school books, football boots and family photos.

Many people will remember Stephen’s tragic murder, but for younger people the centre provides an introduction to the case and to the issues and activism that grew from it.

The centre is really keen to engage with local schools and as well as offering schools the chance to visit the centre, they will also come to do assemblies.
