Remembering Christopher and David: Justice and Police Brutality in Yorkshire
1 February – 6pm – 8pm
@ Leeds West Indian Centre
10 Laycock Place, LS7 3JA Leeds – See Map
In 1949, David Oluwale made his way from his native Nigeria to Hull. He settled in Leeds. Twenty years later, he was found drowned in the River Aire. In 1971, two Leeds police officers were imprisoned for persistently assaulting David as he slept rough, but they were acquitted of his murder.
Nearly 30 years after David’s death, 37-year-old Christopher Alder’s life ended tragically. In 1998, Christopher passed away in the custody suite of Queens Gardens Police Station in Hull with his trousers to his knees, and just yards away from the feet of police officers.
Please join us for this inaugural event in the Conversations in Black History series, where Janet Alder and the Remember Oluwale – The David Oluwale Memorial Association will share the stories of the lives and tragic deaths of David and Christopher. They’ll lead a discussion about attempts to push for justice, raise awareness and memorialize the lives and deaths of these men.
