About the event

The Windrush generation refers to the immigrants who were invited to the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Caribbean countries. The immigrants came at the invitation of the British government, which was facing a labour shortage due to the destruction caused by World War II. However, the 1971 Immigration Act gave Commonwealth citizens who were already living in the UK indefinite leave to remain.
