Cover of this title
The Louder I Will Sing
Lee Lawrence

In this award-winning biography about the fight for justice, Lee Lawrence tells a story sadly no less relevant today than 30 years ago. When Lee was 11 years old, he witnessed his mother being shot by a police officer, resulting in her paralysis. This event shaped the political climate at the time, acting as the spark that ignited the Brixton Riots in London. In today’s political climate, the book provides a much-needed push towards more discussions about institutionalised racism, power hierarchies and inequality.

The text is suitable for an interdisciplinary project with the subject of Politics.
