EMMY-nominated actress Letitia Wright leads the cast of ‘Mangrove,’ a forthcoming episode of Amazon Prime’s ‘Small Axe’ (an anthology series from Steve McQueen).
Telling the true story of the Mangrove Nine (a group of Black activists who clashed with London police during a protest march in 1970), the event spurred a highly publicized trial that was later christened the “first judicial acknowledgment of behavior motivated by racial hatred within the Metropolitan Police. “

Coming just in time for the 50th anniversary of the event, the episode stars Shaun Parkes, Malachi Kirby, Rochenda Sandall, Jack Lowden, Sam Spruell, Nathaniel Martello-White, and more.
‘Mangrove’ was co-written by Alastair Siddons and Steve McQueen.
