Windrush Waves

Event Date:22 June 2020 12:00 am — 28 June 2020 11:00pm

A WEEK OF COMMEMORATION

Windrush Waves 2020 is part of BCA’s recognition of Windrush Day which takes place every year on June 22.

On this day in 1948, hundreds of people from the Caribbean arrived at the Tilbury Docks in Essex on the Empire Windrush ship. Their dream? To be part of rebuilding the motherland after the devastating effects of World War II on Britain. Ultimately, the promise of a home away from home would not be all it would seem.

Join the Black Cultural Archives Team as they present a series of activities from podcasts to storytelling to learning resources all here to ‘edutain’ you on a significant part of British history.

The Black Cultural Archives Team @bcaheritage will be sharing activities (podcasts, learning resources) through the week, visit their Twitter page to receive their posts.
