Legacy in action

The Stephen Lawrence Research Centre (SLRC) drives forward conversations that shape and influence how we think about race and social justice. The SLRC honours the enduring legacy of Stephen Lawrence’s life and his family’s ongoing pursuit of justice by asking new questions, debating critical issues, raising awareness, and advocating to bring about positive change.

Watch: Baroness Doreen Lawrence, former SLRC Director Dr Kennetta Hammond Perry and DMU's Head of Special Collections, Katharine Short talk about the Stephen Lawrence Research Centre.
