Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. IS A BLACK LIFE WORTH LESS THAN A WHITE ONE? When, in May 1969, the body of David Oluwale was fished out of the River Aire near Leeds, not too many questions were asked about the circumstances of his death. Oluwale was a tramp and a patient in a mental hospital, an immigrant from Nigeria who was trapped in a system that failed him miserably - a police charge sheet from just two weeks earlier had BRIT scored out, his nationality replaced with WOG . Eighteen months later a lengthy campaign of harassment by two Leeds policemen was uncovered - Oluwale became national news in Britain, and a symbol for its black community. This extraordinary book draws on original archival material only recently released to revisit one of the most chilling crimes in British history, and at the same time raises questions as relevant today as they were at the end of the sixties.
