‘Thoughts on the Windrush Generations: the Black contribution to the British experience’ with Dr Lez Henry.
In this highly interactive talk, Dr William ‘Lez’ Henry will take you on an audio visual journey of the Black experience in Britain, since the arrival from the Caribbean of the Empire Windrush in 1948. He will highlight many of the hidden struggles of black people in the UK for equal rights and social justice, including the recent very public scandals that have shamed this Government by exposing how they use their whiteness to militate against African/Black people. He will also provide examples detailing the impact of our contributions to what is now regarded as contemporary British lifestyles and culture, beyond the realms of entertainment and fashion. All that is asks is that you bring your mind and make sure it’s open. Hotep!
