Windrush Day Special with guest editor Baroness Benjamin

The Windrush generation and their descendants have contributed so much to contemporary Britain, and as we prepare for the first ever Windrush Day Baroness Floella Benjamin guest-edits our very special edition. From fashion to food, sport to entertainment, we turn the spotlight on the Caribbean pioneers who changed Britain for ever.

In this week’s issue:

  • Historian Mike Phillips examines why the Windrush’s arrival in the UK led to a social transformation
  • Baroness Benjamin speaks to workers on the front line who try to keep youngsters of all races and backgrounds away from gangs
  • Olympic hero Linford Christie writes a Letter to his Younger Self about how a part of him will always be Jamaican
  • Sir Lenny Henry explains how more diversity in the media will help preserve the stories of the Windrush generation and other minorities
  • Ainsley Harriott recalls how the Brits once baffled by mangoes are now eating far more interesting and varied food thanks to immigration

And more! On the streets now…
