70 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE ARRIVAL OF CARIBBEAN PEOPLE ON THE EMPIRE WINDRUSH

TUESDAY 2 OCTOBER 5:00PM

Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE will be giving an inspirational talk to school children and Leicester community on the positive impact of the Windrush generation, and their offspring, in the worlds of politics, business, music and food. Lady Benjamin has recently called for a national Windrush Day, to be commemorated each year on 22 June. ‘I think a special day would be important for schools so that children know why Caribbean people came to live here and what the Windrush generation has done for this country’.
