Monday 22 April 2019 marks 26 years since Stephen Lawrence was cruelly taken from this world in a racially aggravated attack. Stephen was an aspiring architect, but he was never able to fulfil his dreams of becoming one.
Although his life was short, Stephen has become a positive role model of a life well lived, and so much has since been achieved in his name through the vital work of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, which we at The RIBA are so proud to support.
We went to the Stephen Lawrence Centre in South East London to meet two alumni of the Trust, and to hear from the chair of our equality, diversity and inclusion expert panel, Femi Oresanya about the impact that this relationship has on young, aspiring architects.
