Get Involved

Join ‘Windrush Strikes Back’ and become a ‘Decolonial detective’.

We are looking for people who are interested discovering the contributions and histories of the Windrush generation throughout Warwickshire. (Coventry, Birmingham, Leamington, Warwick)

In our findings we hope to find people that are interested in sharing their personal experiences of being part of the ‘Windrush generation’. This could involve being a direct descendant, conversations with granny/grandad... This is history; oral history
