Windrush Generations at the National Portrait Gallery

Windrush Generations at the National Portrait Gallery

Discover the stories of Caribbean Londoners in the post-Windrush era.

From those who arrived in the 1940s and ‘50s to the children of today, Caribbean Londoners are living, breathing and shaping the city. In a brand new series of 1000 Londoners shorts we discover the lives of Londoners with Caribbean heritage, across 4 generations.

‘Windrush Generations’ includes the stories of Dame Jocelyn Barrow, knighted for her achievements in race-relations; teacher Sara who, unhappy with the treatment of the Windrush generation, led a 2018 protest marching from Parliament Square to the Home Office; groundbreaking BBC journalist Alex and his wife Joyce, who reminisce about interviews with the likes of Bob Marley and Mohammed Ali; and young Calvin who plays the steel pans at Notting Hill Carnival with unseen passion; amongst many others.

1000 Londoners is delighted to take its 14th Movie Nights ‘Windrush Generations’ to the National Portrait Gallery, Friday 16 November 7pm. Tickets are now available online (£10).
