Homecoming: Voices of the Windrush Generation with Amelia Gentleman

5th October 2019

With Amelia Gentleman, Colin Grant and Sue Brown.

The arrival of the SS Empire Windrush and her passengers from the Caribbean on 22nd June 1948 marked a seminal moment in Britain’s history. After a call-out for help after the Second World War, over 400 men and women came to the UK to help rebuild the country, and their settlement has continued to enrich our social, cultural, economic and political landscape and shape our identity ever since.

Then in 2018, the Windrush scandal burst to the surface, exposing a deeply disturbing truth about modern Britain.

Hosted by poet and presenter Sue Brown, writer Colin Grant and award-winning journalist Amelia Gentleman will discuss the real-life stories from this generation of pioneers and Amelia’s tenacious, investigative and campaigning journalism which uncovered a scandal that shook the nation.
