Imagining Windrush 100: What’s the vision and agenda for racial equity in Britain?

2023 is the 75th anniversary of HMT Windrush arriving in the UK and celebrates the success and impact of those of Black and Asian heritages since they answered the call to re-build the UK after the Second World War.

Their positive impact has achieved the multi-ethnic Britain we live in now but what needs to change by the time we reach the Windrush centenary year in 2048? This fringe meeting will challenge the panellists and audience to imaging the Britain we want to live in and the public debate, policy agenda and campaigns needed to lay the foundations for the equal Britain which the Windrush generation would have wanted to see.
