Black and white. Two contrasting colours that when brought together create beautiful, fun, and engaging things. What would our world be like without penguins and pandas? What fun would we have missed if there was no Mickey Mouse in Steamboat Willie? What awe inspiring images could never be captured on camera? What books would we never read? What life would Stephen Lawrence have had if he wasn't murdered?
Twenty years ago, teenager Stephen Lawrence was killed in a racist attack, and today, prejudice against skin colour is still costing lives. Stephen did not see people as black and white. He saw people as people, and that is a message the whole world has to learn.
Unity is a concert not only in memory of Stephen, but also a concert to open people's eyes and bring cultures together. Unite communities.
Raising funds for the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, stars such as includes Emeli Sandé, Rizzle Kicks, Labrinth, Plan B, Jamie Cullum, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Rudimental, Ed Sheeran, and Soul II Soul are going to be performing at the 02 Arena on 29th September.
Tickets are £40-£70, and the money raised will go towards helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
How boring life would be everything looked the same. The world is bright and multicoloured, multicultural and diverse. Celebrate the variety of life.
