Colin Grant’s extraordinary book, Homecoming draws on over a hundred first-hand interviews, archival recordings and memoirs by the women and men who came to Britain from the West Indies between the late 1940s and the early 1960s. In it, we hear from nurses, bus drivers, seamstresses, teachers, dockers, inter-racial lovers and Carnival Queens. These are stories of hope and regret, of triumphs and challenges, brimming with humour, anger and wisdom. Together, they reveal a rich tapestry of Caribbean British lives. Homecoming is an unforgettable portrait of a generation, which brilliantly illuminates an essential and much-misunderstood chapter of our history.

Chaired by Daniel Gray
