The Windrush generation and its legacy
Join us to commemorate the Windrush generation and its legacy

Celebrate Windrush Day and the enduring legacy and contribution of the half million Afro-Caribbean immigrants who helped re-build Britain after the Second World War. Speakers include:

Arthur Torrington co-Founder of the Windrush Foundation that designs and delivers heritage projects, programmes and initiatives which highlight African and Caribbean peoples’ contributions to all aspects of life in Britain. He will talk about the role of heritage education in ensuring we respect and value the people who played such a significant role in making modern Britain.

Ivy Scott – who will read her poem "Windrush Blues". Active in promoting and organising Windrush events such as the Online Windrush Educational Conference in July, Ivy is also a part-time post 16 teacher and Educational Consultant. She is a Black Organising Forum Member for Eastern Region and Equality Officer for Ipswich and South Suffolk and a member of the Suffolk Windrush Select Committee.

Pauline Campbell - legal adviser to the Windrush Reach Project which works to increase awareness of the Compensation Scheme. She will discuss the historical aspect of the legacy of the past 50 years with reference to her book Rice & Peas & Fish & Chips, which focuses on Race Relations legislation and the Education system from 1970’s to now, which has impacted on the Windrush generation.
