The British Library’s Windrush Voices Workshop
This workshop explores the arrival of the Empire Windrush in Essex in 1948 and the wider social and historical context of this moment. Students will investigate the experiences of Caribbean immigrants in the 1950s and 1960s through personal testimony from the Sound Archive and contextualise these with a range of other source material.
Students will learn more about the experiences of individuals, the significance of this moment in history, and the challenges and triumphs experienced by the ‘Windrush Generation’.
