22 June 2018 will be the 70th anniversary of the arrival at Tilbury Docks of the Empire Windrush, carrying the first substantial group of post-Second World War migrants to Britain from the Caribbean. To commemorate this important moment in British history, and reflect upon its historical and contemporary significance, Merton College and the History Faculty are jointly sponsoring this public lecture by the distinguished historian, Hakim Adi, who is Professor of the History of Africa and the African Diaspora at Chichester University.

All are welcome to attend; the lecture will be followed by a wine reception.
