CARIBBEAN AND THE WINDRUSH GENERATION
With members of ACKHI African Caribbean & Kultural Heritage Initiative Benson Parish Hall OX10 6LZ Wednesday 27 November 10am – 3.30pm (Doors open at 9.30)
2018 marked the 70th anniversary since the SS Empire Windrush anchored at Tilbury Docks. It has been hailed as a significant moment in British history, arguably changing the economic, social and cultural landscape of Britain.
Join us to commemorate, celebrate and honour those “Trail Blazers” and their contribution to British society. Our speakers will be Junie James Director of ACKHI who has her own Windrush story, Natty Mark Samuels who is the founder of African School, a cultural education programme based in Oxford and Amantha Edmead Actress and storyteller whose passion for performance has found outlets at church, school and in dance.
Whet your appetite with authentic Caribbean food. Coffee on arrival included. (Bring your own cups please.) There will be several themed displays to peruse as well as our own quality raffle.
Cost: Members £20.00, Non-members £23.00
Closing date: Friday 1 November
