The Windrush Papers

Host: Kwaku

Venue: London Action Resource Centre, 62 Fieldgate Street, London E1 1ES (Whitechapel)

Date: Wednesday June 19 2018, 6-8pm

Cost: Free

This presentation eschews the “bad histories”, misinformation and conflations of the Windrush narrative, by focusing on the genesis, 1947-1950 – the immediate before and after periods of the arrival of the Empire Windrush from the Caribbean. it’s based on contemporaneous accounts of the period, rather than revisionist narrative.

Come and find out more, ask questions, and add to the narrative. Be prepared to challenge your cognitive inertia, and be open to resolving any cognitive dissonance that might occur!

The presentation is followed by a discussion, which allows the audience to interrogate the issues raised in the presentation.
