London: Hundreds attend Darcus Howe's funeral

Celebrities , United Kingdom - 20 April 2017

Hundreds paid tribute to Darcus Howe's funeral on April 20, 2017 in London. Darcus Howe, the broadcaster, writer and civil rights campaigner, has died aged 74. His family announced his death in a statement released on Sunday that read: “Darcus died quietly and unexpectedly in his sleep on the evening of Saturday 1 April. Howe, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, lived in Brixton, south London, for 30 years and was well known for his Channel 4 series Black on Black and late-night current affairs programme The Devil’s Advocate. Howe was a member of the British Black Panther movement and one of the “Mangrove Nine”. In 1981, he organized a 20,000-strong “Black People’s March” in protest over the police handling of the investigation into the New Cross fire in which 13 black teenagers died.
