The Homecoming: Voices of The Windrush Generation – Colin Grant

June 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join historian Colin Grant in a special talk about his critically acclaimed book “Homecoming: Voices of the Windrush Generation”. On 21 June 1948, British troopship HMT Empire Windrush anchored at Tilbury Docks, Essex, carrying hundreds of passengers from the Caribbean. 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.

The event will be hosted by Amy Zaparilla Solis, founder of Writing Our Legacy and they will be joined by poet Akila Richards.
