Windrush: Looking Back, Moving Forward
22 JUNE - 14 SEPTEMBER 2019
Black Cultural Archives presents Windrush: Looking back, Moving Forward, a series of events that explore the concept of belonging and raises questions about Britishness, citizenship and identity.
Our dedicated exhibition focuses on key legislation from the 1940s, 1980s and 2010s and how their existence has impacted on the lives 'Windrush Generation' forever. We demonstrate how successive Governments have used legislation to define who is, or is not British- often along the lines of race.
We are also hosting a series of panel discussions, events, activities and displays that will allow you to hear the untold stories of the 'Windrush Generation' firsthand, experience the power of their legacy and discover the impact that this important piece of living history has on all Britons.
This exhibition has a £3 admission fee.
