Local and Live presents: Homecoming – Voices of the Windrush Generation by Colin Grant
This event was originally scheduled for 29th November. All tickets remain valid.
Join historian Colin Grant in a special talk about his critically-acclaimed book “Homecoming – Voices of the Windrush Generation” along with writers Amy Zamarripa Solis and Akila Richards from the Brighton-based Writing Our Legacy organisation.
On 21 June 1948, British troopship HMT Empire Windrush anchored at Tilbury Docks, Essex, carrying hundreds of passengers from the Caribbean. The Windrush Generation is the name of these first passengers and the consequent waves of immigration of people who left everything to come help rebuild the country after World War II.
Grant’s Homecoming captures the true-life stories of over 100 people including Sussex residents.
Part of the Local and Live mini-festival, a joint initiative between Ropetackle Arts Centre and Shoreham Wordfest, to celebrate the creativity of local writers, musicians, actors and poets and the return to live performance.
