Lee Lawrence was 11 years old when he witnessed the shooting of his mother Cherry Groce by police, sparking the 1985 Brixton riot. When she died in 2011 Lee campaigned to obtain justice, culminating in a full public apology and accountability by the Metropolitan Police. Lee is a qualified mediator looking to share his story and the benefits of alternative dispute resolution. He founded the Cherry Groce Foundation to make a difference to the lives of ordinary people who are faced with extraordinary challenges. In September 2020, Little, Brown published his memoir THE LOUDER I WILL SING, which went on to win the 2020 Costa Biography Prize.
