A Memorial for David Oluwale

David Oluwale is the first of 1000’s of Black people to die in police custody in Britain. He was relentlessly harassed and abused by two City of Leeds police officers.


4th May 1969, the body of David Oluwale is pulled from the River Aire in Leeds. Eighteen months later, the investigation into his death ripped apart the police force, exposing the dark side of the shiny, new city in which he died.
