The Windrush Generation

The Windrush Generation

In this episode, Dr. Hettie V. Williams is in conversation with Dr. Ken Campbell Professor of history at Monmouth University and author of A History of the British Isles: Prehistory to the Present and many other books on British history and beyond about race and the Windrush Generation in England. The Windrush Generation has become a major topic of discussion in the African Diaspora. This phrase refers to the ship MV Empire Windrush which docked in Tilbury June 22, 1948 bringing workers primarily from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and various other Caribbean Islands to England. Many of the ship’s 492 passengers were children. The University of Oxford estimates that they are among the 500,000 or more UK residents born in Commonwealth countries before 1971.
