Nottingham Black History Collective formed in 2018 to celebrate and reflect on 70 years of the Windrush's arrival from the Caribbean islands, 22 June 1948. The contribution from the Caribbean community in the UK has been gigantic in all fields of life. The opening weekend from 22 to 24 June set the scene for a vibrant season of events in the following months across Nottingham, including Nottingham Carnival and Black History Month.
This year we are hosting two events to reflect on 70 years of Windrush. Join Alexander D Great for Calypso: Licks and Politricks, Thursday 1 November and Nottingham Black Archives for Windrush: Journeys to Nottingham, Thursday 29 November 2018.
