On Saturday 22 April, the Royal Borough of Greenwich will be inviting residents and community groups to mark the 30th anniversary of the death of Stephen Lawrence, with a community event in Woolwich.
Stephen Lawrence was murdered in an unprovoked racist attack on 22 April 1993. Stephen Lawrence Day is a celebration of his life and legacy that takes place annually on the anniversary of his death.
Stephen had ambitions to use his talent for maths, art, and design to become an architect, and wanted to have a positive impact on his community.
The Council will be remembering Stephen at an event from 11am to 4pm in General Gordon Square, Woolwich, where people will contribute to a piece of artwork exploring the Stephen Lawrence Research Centre’s theme of ‘Hopeful Futures’. Everybody will be able to add to a vision of the future where all our communities live life to the full and enjoy the same opportunities as friends and neighbours across the borough and beyond.
