The Black Curriculum UK And Spotify Team Up For 'A Letter Home: In Praise Of Windrush' Podcast Series


June 23, 2023

The 75-years anniversary of HMT Empire Windrush first touching British shores was celebrated this week.

In commemoration and celebration, The Black Curriculum UK teamed up with Spotify UK to make a podcast series in which young Black British hosts of Caribbean descent engage with cross-generational elders who came to this country via the Windrush. The podcast series is called A Letter Home: In Praise Of Windrush and features South London rapper Cristale, Keisha Da Sket author Jade LB, chef NattyCanCook and menswear designer Bianca Saunders.

Founder of The Black Curriculum UK, Lavinya Stennett, said: "Seeing the seismic impact that Black Caribbean communities continue to have on British culture and trends is a cause for celebration but also a time to reflect on challenges faced by the Windrush Generation and what continues to need to be done to build a more cohesive and anti-racist society."

Check out the 4-part series on Spotify today.
