#RememberOluwale Patron: Professor Caryl Phillips

 17th - 29th April 2019

The 50th anniversary of the death of David Oluwale is marked on the 18th of April 2019

 To commemorate his death the #RememberOluwale charity has organised an impressive series of events led by some of the UK's most exciting artists, writers, poets and musicians, including Jackie Kay, Caryl Phillips, Rasheed Araeen, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Juwon Ogungbe and Moji Kareem's Utopia Theatre.

David Oluwale was a British-Nigerian who died in tragic circumstances in Leeds in 1969.

The David Oluwale Memorial Association (DOMA) was founded in 2012 to ensure Leeds does not forget David’s story. Using the arts, it campaigns for social inclusion, hospitality and tolerance in the city. These memorial events provide an opportunity for the whole city to come together to reflect on David's life, through performances, guided walks, music, and film.
