Windrush Generations grew out of a desire to create a platform that honours and celebrates the Caribbean diaspora in Manchester.
The name is inspired by the Windrush Pioneers who came to Britain during the largest post-war migration, it also acknowledges the nuance, diversity and resilience of the children and grandchildren of that pioneering generation.
The goal of Windrush Generations is to highlight the histories, voices and experiences of the Caribbean diaspora. We want to spotlight individuals and organisations who are working towards this too.
We want to create a safe space for people to acknowledge and talk about issues, inspire each other to rise up and effect change.
We want to support the building of community through the sharing of common experience, but also celebrating what makes each of us unique. We want being Caribbean, children or grandchildren of immigrants to be a point of pride.
We hope that you will join us in our efforts, be it by sharing you or your family’s story, contributing to our projects, becoming an ally, joining our team of volunteers, or helping spread the word.
