Windrush 75

Thanks to all who came to my Windrush 75 reception in Parliament this week, a time to honour the Windrush pioneers & their descendants & continue the call for justice.

I was glad to welcome representatives from local community organisations, staff from King’s College Hospital & South London & the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts, youth organisations, faith communities and granddaughter of Windrush passenger & RAF Airman Sam King. Thanks to my Lambeth colleagues Florence Eshalomi MP and Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP for supporting.

Special thanks to Dawn Hill CBE, poet Jenny Mitchell, Lisa Anderson from the Black Cultural Archives, poet David Neita, Arthur Torrington from the Windrush Foundation and the brilliant students from St-Martins-in-the-Fields High School for Girls for inspiring us all.
