WITH his wonderful mellifluous, articulate tones, we interviewed Lukman Kazeem.
Lukman spent his early days in Nigeria before he came to Harlow, where he was educated at Stewards Academy, before he went on to Stewards Academy and then to Southampton University.
This, in many ways, is the first interview with a person in their early twenties; looking at the world through the eyes of a millennial.
To mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.
The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.
