Summary
Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush, Stephen Bourne's 'War to Windrush' explores the lives of Britain's immigrant community through the experiences of Black British women during the period spanning from the beginning of WWII to the arrival of the Empire Windrush in 1948. In those short years, Black British women performed integral roles in keeping the country functioning and set the stage for the arrival of other black Britons on the MV Empire Windrush. The book shows first-hand what life was like in Britain for black women through photography and evocative prose. 'War to Windrush' retraces the history of those women who helped to build the great, multicultural Britain we know today. It is a celebration of multiculturalism and immigration, much needed in today's political climate
