Mother Country: Real Stories of the Windrush Children

by Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff
£20.00   hardback  Headline Publishing Group (2018)

Mother Country: Real Stories of the Windrush Children by Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff A leading new exploration of the Windrush generation, featuring David Lammy and Lenny Henry.
 
Britain was known as the Mother Country: a home away from home; a place that you would be welcomed with open arms; a land where you were free to build a new life... 70 years on, this remarkable book explores the reality of the Windrush experience.

"The story of Windrush must not be sterilised, or overly simplified. It is not only a story of successful integration, sport and cultural icons, or even everyday heroes like my mother, any more than it is only a story of Home Office failure, of systemic racism, or the consequences of slavery. The story of Windrush, is, like any other, a story of humanity. Of life, love, struggle, hope, misery, success and failure. It's one that is too often neglected in our media, but this volume acts as a remedy to that failure of story-telling, which I ask you to both savour and share."
(David Lammy MP)
Mother Country is an honest, eye-opening, funny, moving and ultimately inspiring celebration of the lives of both ordinary and extraordinary people.
