Kingsley died in extremely suspicious circumstances in Birmingham. It is reported that Kingsley called the police, after trying to talk to a group of young people who were intimidating him and his 5 year old son. Kingsley was subsequently arrested and detained under the mental health act, days later he was in intensive care and subsequently died.

Message from Kedisha: (Kingsley Burrell's sister)
"I'm not just calling on ethnic minority but global majority to bridge the gap between institutionalised racism and custodial deaths.

"As a community at large we need to join forces in support of my late brother Kingsley Burrell's Campaign as one step forward in challenging current legislation. Out of many we are one strong diverse culture with strong religious beliefs. Therefore I take this opportunity to invite one and all to take part in the March for Justice on Saturday 2nd July 2011 to be held in Birmingham.

"We owe it to ourselves to guide and protect our past present and future generations in breaking through the chains of mental and physical slavery and I urge you all to attend in order show your support in this ongoing fight against inequalities in Great Britain."
