Stroud Love Radio’s Roger Edmond, said: Stroud Love Radio is really excited to be working with Stroud Against Racism on this exciting Stephen Lawrence tribute project. It’s something we have never done before, and mastering the technology required will be a steep learning curve. But for a project like this. It’s worth it.”
Hosted by poets Sommer Jade, Quinton Green, and Rohan Samuel the evening will be a thoughtful and eclectic mix of responses to the anniversary of the young man’s untimely demise. Interwoven with this, the panel will discuss the implications of the Sewell report, and the impact it has had and will continue to have on people who suffer from racism in the UK.
The ever-growing line up of guests will see Labour candidate for the Forest of Dean Khady Gueye and Green Party candidate Beki Aldham, spoken word artists including Broken Pen (from TV’s The Voice) and Miss Yankee, and a whole mix of talent including international poets like Red Medusa (as featured in Vogue).
It will be an entertaining, educational, and inspirational evening, and, a fitting tribute to the memory of the late Stephen Lawrence.
