Blog: Geraldine Connor Foundation: Windrush Resources 'Food & Drink'
Written by Geraldine Connor Foundation  15/06/2020

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.

Food And Drink
The Windrush Generation were highly influential in increasing the popularity of Caribbean food in the UK. They brought recipes from the Caribbean and created spaces to celebrate their culture with food. Watch the video to hear first, second and third Windrush Generation Leeds residents discuss the role of food in their culture and their lives.

Visit the Geraldine Connor Foundation website for more information.
All films were made by Sally Molineaux.
