Windrush Day is a special anniversary for me. 70 years ago, HMT Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks and marked the beginning of one of the most significant contributions to British life in the last century. The passengers on board this ship came with ambition, skills, and a desire to play a part in the UK’s reconstruction after World War Two. On Windrush Day, it is more important than ever to shine a light on what made this event so integral to the Britain we live in today.
