Jorden Myrie On Stephen
Stephen portrays the events from 2006, thirteen years after Stephen’s death on the evening of 22 April 1993 in a racially motivated attack. He was just a normal person waiting for a bus in Well Hall Road, Eltham, at the time.
The drama mainly focused on the struggles faced by Stephen’s parents Doreen and Neville Lawrence who spent 18 years fighting for justice for their son. Also, it shed light on the investigation put together by the detective, DCI Clive Driscoll, who finally secured the convictions of two of the gang who murdered Stephen.

The book discusses Stephen’s life.
According to Stuart, he always looked up to Stephen. “He was the stereotypical big brother in some senses: I thought he was better looking than I was, had better clothes. It was that admiration you have for an older sibling,” he added.
