THE DAVID OLUWALE MEMORIAL ASSOCATION (DOMA)

The David Oluwale Memorial Assocation (DOMA) starts with the story of David Oluwale’s origins in Nigeria and his life and death in Leeds (1949-1969), including his early life in Nigeria and his experience in the UK of exclusion and police persecution.  We aim to educate the city of Leeds in coming to terms with its past, improving its care for those who remain marginalised, and to promote equality, diversity and racial harmony for our people.
