War To Windrush: Black Women in Britain 1939-1948
To commemorate the 70th anniversary of both the arrival of the Empire Windrush and the birth of the National Health Service, cinema and social historian
shines a light on the lives and roles of black women in Britain over the last seven decades.
Highlighting those figures who played a distinct role in this pivotal time in British history, Bourne will discuss how black women contributed significantly to the rebuilding of post-war Britain—paying homage not just to those better-known figures such as Lilian Bader, Nadia Cattouse and Norma Bestand, but the unknown and ‘ordinary’ women that often go unsung.
Stephen will be in conversation with Jacke Holder, followed by an audience Q&A.
