The Louder I Will Sing: A story of racism, riots and redemption à AKALA This is the story of arguably one of the most important yet least known events in modern British history Lees journey and fight for justice are both inspiring and enraging What would you do if the people you trusted to uphold the law committed a crime against you? Who would you turn to? And how long would you fight them for? On 28th September 1985 Lee Lawrences mother Cherry Groce was wrongly shot by police during a raid on her Brixton home The bullet shattered her spine and she never walked again In the chaos that followed 11 year old Lee watched in horror as the News falsely pronounced his mother dead In Brixton already a powder keg because of the deep racism that the community was experiencing it was the spark needed to trigger two days of rioting that saw buildings brought down by petrol bombs cars torched and shops looted But for Lee it was a spark that lit a flame that would burn for the next 30 years as he fought to get the police to recognise their wrongdoing His life had changed forever he was now his mothers carer he had seen first hand the prejudice that existed in his country and he was at the mercy of a society that was working against him And yet that flame for justice for peace for change kept him going The Louder I Will Sing is a powerful compelling and uplifting memoir about growing up in modern Britain as a young Black man Its a story both of people and politics of the underlying racism beneath many of our most important institutions but also the positive power that hope faith and love can bring in response I started this book on Saturday morning and finished Saturday evening I could not put it down The structure moving between the time before Lee’s mother’s death and after was very compelling The description of the night of his mother’s shooting by the police was absolutely devastating and I cried several times throughout the book It was written with honesty integrity and authenticity Lee Lawrence was a true advocate for his mother and his tenacity was inspiring I also found it extremely educational regarding racism generally and completely eye opening What his family had to endure should never happen to anyone and the fact that he had to fight simply for recognition acknowledgement and apologies was so humbling I would highly recommend this book to anyone This should be a staple part of any education in helping to dismantle racism I loved it Every word As difficult as it was to read In parts In terms of the agony endured lives destroyed Icould not put it down Lee Lawrence is truly a warrior for truth and justice Epub ↠ A story of racism ï Lee Lawrence
