Dr. Margaret Byron joins us to set the story of the HMT Empire Windrush within important socio-economic and historical aspects of Post-War migration to Britain. The talk will focus on the colonial relationship that underlies Post World War II migration, the 1948 link between this migration and the NHS and the re-emergence of ‘Windrush’ in 2018 immigration discourse.
