The trial that followed was the first judicial acknowledgment of behavior motivated by racial hatred within the Metropolitan Police.--Imdb, January 27, 2021.Lovers Rock: A single evening at a house party in 1980s West London sets the scene, developing intertwined relationships against a background of violence, romance and music.--Imdb, January 27, 2021.Red, white and blue: Spotlights the true story of Leroy Logan, who at a young age saw his father assaulted by two policemen, motivating him to join the Metropolitan Police and change their racist attitudes from within.--Imdb, January 27, 2021.Alex Wheatle: Follows the true story of award-winning writer, Alex Wheatle, from a young boy through his early adult years. Having spent his childhood in a mostly white institutional care home with no love or family, he finally finds not only a sense of community for the first time in Brixton, but his identity and ability to grow his passion for music and DJing. When he is thrown in prison during the Brixton Uprising of 1981, he confronts his past and sees a path to healing.--Imdb, January 27, 2021.Education: Education is the coming of age story of 12-year-old Kingsley, who has a fascination for astronauts and rockets. When Kingsley is pulled to the headmaster's office for being disruptive in class, he discovers he's being sent to a school for those with "special needs."
