A public lecture on the history and legacy of the Windrush generation, with Patrick Vernon.
The 400-plus passengers on the Windrush were by no means the first to come to the UK, but they were perhaps among the first to come voluntarily, neither fleeing persecution nor coming to Britain against their will. Windrush has been consumed in the mainstream narrative reflecting the hopes, aspirations and values of all migrant communities.
Event presented in partnership with Cambridge City Council as part of the Black History Month programme.
