Harry Pinero and Henrie Kwushue have returned with a special episode of Spotify’s Who We Be Talks podcast.

This past weekend marked the 40th anniversary of the 1981 Brixton Riots and Harry and Henrie are joined by Novelist, Leroy Logan MBE and Tony Cealy to discuss the events that occurred.

With Novelist being a young artist and a former young assistant mayor of Lewisham, Leroy Logan MBE being a former officer and Tony Cealy being an actor, director and trainer who was actually present at the riots, each guest brings their own unique perspective to this important conversation.

The discussion begins with Leroy Logan MBE describing his reaction to John Boyega recently playing him in the powerful Small Axe series, before the group of five delve into a conversation about tensions between the Black community and the police, the significance of the riots and what has changed since 1981.
