Living Knowledge Network: Stories of the Windrush Children with Benjamin Zephaniah


Join the Living Knowledge Network live: Tuesday 22 June, 14:00 – 15:00.

Children’s stories of immigration from the Caribbean.

Join them to mark Windrush Day, set up in 2018 to celebrate and commemorate the Windrush Generation and their contribution to British history. This year we look at the stories and experiences of children who came to the UK from the Caribbean as part of the post-war immigration boom, and those who were left behind, joining their parents in their new life later on.

In this event Benjamin Zephaniah will be in conversation with Black Cultural Archives Learning and Engagement Manager Ayshah Johnston, chaired by journalist and broadcaster Kieran Yates, to further explore the themes in his book, Windrush Child, and the legacy and struggles of this unique community.
