*It’s Black History Month in the United Kingdom this October and since June this year, it’s been 75 years since the arrival of Caribbean people to the UK on board the HMT Empire Windrush ship.

The Windrush story should be told to children continuously through workshop sessions and events, to their understanding. It needs to be well documented.

They are the future who will carry on the history of Black Britons of Caribbean heritage, who helped change Britain as well as the contributions Black people have made, to global history.

Windrush is an aspect of British history and should not be wished away. BBC News presenter at present reporting from Jerusalem following the Israel-Hamas conflict was born to Windrush-generation Jamaican parents and has contributed immensely to journalism in the UK.

And coming from Trinidad and Tobago she was also part of the Windrush generation who came to Britain and who overcame adversity in trying to settle in Britain and make her home.
