SILENCE IS NEVER AN OPTION - STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, BE THE DIFFERENCE.

During this book launch Stuart will talk about his experiences and invite questions from the audience about his book and his life. Stuart will be signing copies of his book on the day.

In this non-fiction debut, Stuart Lawrence talks about what he has learned from life -the tools that have helped him live positively and kept him moving forwards when times have been tough. From role models to self-control, failure to imagination, Stuart uses his own experiences to help people – to help all people - harness the good in themselves and in the world around them, using that fire of positivity to create change in their lives.

Stuart Lawrence is a motivational speaker and youth engagement specialist. His brother, Stephen Lawrence was murdered in a racially motivated attack in 1993. The Lawrence family’s tireless campaign for justice has led to cultural shifts and changes in attitudes towards racism within British society.

Stuart has worked as a teacher for fifteen years, He now works within the education system to equip young people with the mindset to believe and achieve what they want in life, no matter the challenges they might face .

Stuart has been working with organisations/broadcasters to help them focus on areas of racism, internally and externally within our society. In July 2020 alone he was a part of various panels, podcasts, 1 to 1 interview’s across ITV, The Sun, BBC London and Good Morning Britain to name a few.

Stephen Lawrence Foundation

The Stephen Lawrence Foundation was recently launched to redouble efforts, think bigger and use the current moment to create further opportunities for more people on our journey to equality for all. Theresa May, the former prime minister, officially marked April 22 – the day in 1993 that Stuarts brother tragically died – as the Stephen Lawrence Day in the British calendar. It is a celebration of his life and legacy; a moment to reflect, to keep the focus on racial inequality and celebrate efforts to remove it.

As part of the Foundation, we want to inspire children to dream freely without barriers and to realise the absolute importance of education; we want to support and create new connections within all types of communities; and to collaborate with big businesses to put black men from low-income families on a path towards the boardrooms of the UK’s most prestigious organisations
