The making of the Windrush Generation Barbara Ellis

Monday 21 October 6.30-8pm

This session will focus on how the ‘so called Windrush Generation’ was created linking their presence in the Caribbean beginning from the buying and selling of Africans from the 14th century onwards, first by Arabs and then the Europeans. After Emancipation in 1838, the freed Africans thrust aside their past enslavement forcefully. They did not look back but set about achieving their inborn aspirations in the UK from 1948. However 66 years later, the British Government’s Immigration Act of 2014 removed the automatic right to citizenship.
