Hidden Stories of the Lawrence Inquiry

27 Nov 2013

Discussion and book launch on Wednesday, 4 December (6-8.30pm; registration from 5.30pm) in the Martin Harris Centre

The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre invite you to a book launch and discussion with Dr Richard Stone, author of recently published book Hidden Stories of the Lawrence Inquiry.

Dr Stone was a panel member of the 1997–99 Stephen Lawrence Inquriy as advisor to the judge, Sir William Macpherson.

This is the fourth in a series of visits to each of the six inner city areas visited by the Lawrence Inquiry in 1998. It is an opportunity for the public to discuss with Dr Stone:

  • Current concerns about racism in Manchester, especially of younger people who were too young to know about the Lawrence Inquiry
  • Report on progress which has or has not been made
  • Identify how we can work together to make the necessary change
