Windrush Day: Celebrating Contributions and Recognising Hardships of the Windrush Generation Through Literature

June 2021 marks 73 years since the SS Empire Windrush docked in Essex, carrying Caribbean migrants to the UK to aid the re-build of Britain in the aftermath of World War 2. As well as replenishing the workforce however, the Windrush generation provided a cultural enrichment that would change British society forever. Join us at Reading Friends as we celebrate the contributions and recognise the hardships of the Windrush Generation and their descendants through literature written by and about them.

Feel free to bring your own ideas and reading materials to contribute!
