The lockdown imposed by the pandemic has affected all of our plans for #RememberOluwale. Even with the lifting of restrictions we are aware that the virus is here to stay and that we must follow all the regulations on public events. We are now tentatively planning events for April 2021 to commemorate the 52nd anniversary of David’s killing. We are most grateful for funding from Leeds2023 which allows the first phase of our work on the David Oluwale Memory Garden in Aire Park to start now. We will use Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep our message in circulation, and to announce events when we have the details. Please stay in touch.
