Windrush, The Irresistible Rise Of Multi-racial Britain
Broadcaster Trevor Phillips and his novelist brother Mike retell the very human story of Britain's Windrush.
Windrush: The Irresistible Rise of Multi-Racial Britain opens with the memories and impressions of those who came on the Windrush.
The tell an epic tale of British life in the twentieth century, through the witness of their descendants, friends, neighbours and colleagues and the testimonies of politicians who made the key decisions alongside those who were then opposed to the presence of the black settlers.
Windrush moves through the crucial events of British social history in the second half of the twentieth century: the great uprisings of the late fifties and early sixties, the hysteria of Powellism, the remodelling of England's inner cities and the current passionate debates about the meaning of Englishness.
Concluding with a portrait of multi-racial Britain in the present day, Windrush is a celebration of the black British and of the new heritage Britain will carry forward into the twenty-first century.
