The Caribbean Windrush Generation, Colonialism and the Idea of Home

Primary tabs

I have been writing and sharing quite a bit recently on the issue of the “Windrush Generation” and the issue of immigration in the UK – the country of my birth, which continues to lean to the right politically, is leaving Europe and has turned its face against immigrants from Europe and elsewhere in recent years. What a sad episode it is. A few days ago I shared the first part of Professor Bernard Headley’s family story. Now, another academic with Jamaican roots, Dr. Anne Bailey, has written on the Windrush topic.
