During the 1950s, many young men and women left the Caribbean islands for England, in the hope of finding a so called better life. Instead what they initially found was resentment and hostility.
Today, the arrival of the Windrush is viewed as a turning point in the recent history of Britain and has come to symbolise the many ways in which Caribbean people have contributed to and transformed British life. The #Windrush#pioneers, their children and grandchildren have all played a vital role in creating a new concept of what it means to be British. ------------------ ENTERTAINMENT SEGMENT
