Colour of Justice, The: The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry  

Colour of Justice, The: The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
In 1993, black teenager Stephen Lawrence was stabbed to death in a racist attack by a gang of white youths. The police investigation failed to provide sufficient evidence to convict. Based on the harrowing transcripts of the public inquiry, this is a dramatic reconstruction of the hearings which reflected the national outcry at the police's mishandling of the case.
