The Geraldine Connor Foundation have created a brilliant resource to help people learn about the mass migration of people from the Caribbean to the UK between 1948 – 1971, commonly called ‘Windrush’. The resource combines short films, interviews, recipes, literature and music and is suitable for young people and adults. You can find the full resource here.
Watch the short video to learn about the experiences of the British-born children and grandchildren of the Windrush Generation. They discuss what it was like to live and go to school as a black child in Leeds and the racism they were subjected to in their every day lives. They also talk about the importance of education that was instilled in them by their parents.
