Description

Talk

Voices of the Windrush Generation: The real story told by the people themselves by David Matthews is a powerful collection of stories from the men, women and children of the Windrush generation - West Indians who emigrated to Britain between 1948 and 1971 in response to labour shortages, and in search of a better life.

This talk on the subject will include poignant stories, including film footage, a document display and discussion on the subject.

This is a free event, so entry is not guaranteed and will be on a first come, first served basis.
