An old map of the Caribbean is overlaid with a modern map of the UK, with the words Windrush Day Lecture on top

This is the first in a series of annual events in Leicester making the anniversary of Windrush. Join us to celebrate the contribution of the Windrush Generation and their descendants.

This lecture will contextualise Windrush, explore where we are now and look at next steps.

The event will include:

A keynote from Stephen Small, Professor of African American Studies at UC Berkeley. Small’s research and expertise lie in public history, collective memory and the African Diaspora in Europe.

A screening of the short documentary film, A Very Brit(ish) Voice, commissioned by Serendipity for Archiving The Past, Reflecting The Future in 2019. The film features seven voices from the Caribbean community in Leicester who share their thoughts and experiences.

An in conversation discussion covering the themes of the film and keynote.

Join us to mark this important date, hear the stories of those involved, and look at the issues still faced by the Windrush Generation today.
