This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Windrush Generation – a group of people who emigrated from the Caribbean to Britain aboard the SS Empire Windrush, which arrived at the Tilbury Dock on 22nd June 1948. The Black Cultural Archives, based in Windrush Square, Brixton, held two free exhibitions which marked the occasion.
The Expectations Exhibition tells the untold story of Black British Community Leaders in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The photos were taken by Neil Kenlock, an influential young photographer during that time. Below is just a sneek peak of what you can expect to see at this exhibition which runs until the end of September. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
