Public Film Screening: ‘Windrush: The Years After’ – a grassroots documentary on African Caribbean families settled in Huddersfield – with Special Guest Speakers (The Folk Hall, New Earswick, York)
October 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm£3
Hosted by Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust.
The film tells the story of people from Caribbean countries who migrated to England and arrived in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, between 1948 to 1972. The documentary brings to light their struggle to prove their British citizenship, the discrimination they and their children born in England encountered, the celebrations, and their sense of maintaining their identity, culture and heritage. Thought-provoking, a celebration of persistence and resistance, authentic, uncomfortable and challenging to comprehend their journey for acceptance. If you are interested in knowing more about the African Caribbean communities Legacy in Yorkshire, Windrush the Years After is an essential watch.
With Caribbean food to start, and Q&A with our Special Guest Speakers:
Milton Brown, CEO of Kirklees Local TV and Louise Muhammad, Black History Month (BHM) coordinator for Kirklees Council BAME network
