Mandela Auditorium, Strath Union
Sheku Bayoh came to Scotland at the age of 17, thinking it would be safer for a young black man to grow up here than in London. In 2015, when Sheku was 31, he was killed in a confrontation with police officers on the street in Kirkcaldy. Join us to learn about Sheku’s life and his family’s campaign for justice in this 30-minute documentary and following discussion with Dr Halima Begum, former CEO of the Runnymede Trust, the UK's race equality think tank.
More info on the campaign can be found on the Justice for Sheku Bayoh webpage.
