Join Carnegie UK Trust’s Douglas White, activist, writer and Cytûn Chief Executive Reverend Aled Edwards, and Kindness Matters Cardiff’s Charlotte Waite to explore the practice and meaning of kindness, ways to encourage it and how it can shape the world around us for the better.

Shreds: The story of the Cardiff Five
18.00 – 18.45

Ceri Jackson (BBC Wales), John Actie, Tony Paris,  Kervin Julien (campaigner)

Valentine’s Day 1988: 20-year-old Lynette White is brutally murdered in a flat in Cardiff’s docklands. A man is seen crouched in the doorway of the murder scene. He is crying; his hands covered in blood. Fifty detectives hunt the ‘distinctive white man’ whose likeness is flashed across newspapers and TV. Why 10 months later were five black men rounded up and charged? What unfolded over the next 30 years is a tale so scandalous you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a work of fiction. What is the true cost of the notorious ‘Cardiff Five’ miscarriage of justice? On individuals, society and the street?
