On 22 June 1948, the SS Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks in London.
Now every year we mark this special anniversary with Windrush Day.
The event is an opportunity to celebrate the Windrush generation, and acknowledge the contributions and sacrifices of British Caribbean communities.
We can't wait to celebrate Windrush Day 2022 with you. Keep an eye on this page for more details, and keep exploring to find online activities, interviews and resources.
