Episode 46 - Stephen Lawrence

The brutal, racially motivated murder of 18 year old Stephen Lawrence on the streets of South East London was a watershed moment in British history. It revealed the shocking institutional racism that lay at the heart of the London Metropolitan Police. In this week’s episode Hannah and Suruthi trace this difficult, but desperately important, story from the climate of race relations before Stephen’s murder, how this fed into a corrupt police investigation - and ask why 25 years later, justice has still not been done.
