Duwayne Brooks speaks to OBV


In eighteen short years Duwayne Brooks has lived a lifetime. He has witnessed his best friend Stephen Lawrence-Steve to him- savagely murdered.

The police accussed him and Stephen of being gang members, others accused him of ensuring that the private prosecution of those who killed Stephen failed.

He is now an elected local legislator with his eyes on a bigger political prize. Here in three parts he talks about all of this and more. Brooks said, 'Through OBV I want to speak to my community'.
