A prominent speaker is set to deliver a talk on Windrush day followed by a Q&A session. There will also be the opportunity to find out more about the Windrush compensation schemes.

The Museum is a member of the Windrush roup; celebrating the arrival of the African Caribbean community in Britain on HMT Windrush in 1948.

The Windrush Group includes local heritage organisations, museums, theatre makers, creatives and university partners. The Pitt Rivers Museum team have co-produced programming with these partners to highlight the stories and contributions of the African and African Caribbean community in Oxford.

Oxford Windrush Group confirmed that like previous years, events will take place in the weeks leading up to and following the day.

The announcement comes on the same day as Stephen Lawrence Day, a day that commemorates the life of Stephen Lawrence, a black teenager who was killed in a racist attack in 1993.
