Today is Windrush Day

HMT Empire Windrush between 1945 and 1954
Windrush Day was introduced in June 2018 on the 70th anniversary of the Windrush migration. On 22 June 1948, 492 Caribbean people were brought to Tilbury Docks, Essex, in the UK, on the Empire Windrush ship. News reports at the time reported that the number of people was 492, but the ship’s records show that the ship was carrying 1,027 passengers. According to the passenger lists, 802 of those on board the ship gave their last country of residence as somewhere in the Caribbean. The purpose of Windrush Day is to encourage “communities across the country to celebrate the contribution of the Windrush Generation and their descendants,” according to the United Kingdom government.
