Windrush Strikes Back: Decolonising Global Warwickshire

Windrush Strikes Back: Decolonising Global Warwickshire (WSB) is a community-engaged history project facilitated by the Global Warwickshire Collective (GWC). The project is focused on uncovering the hidden histories written by British African Caribbean peoples in historic Warwickshire, including Coventry, Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Over the course of six months, the GWC will mentor and train descendants of the Windrush generations, as "Decolonial Detectives." Through training and engagement, the intention of this project is to inspire community members to take more active ownership of and involvement in the production of our histories, and to challenge the exclusivity of historical scholarship in Britain. Together we will work towards decolonising the entangled "glocal" histories of Shakespeare's county, Warwickshire.
