Voices of Windrush

At the start of May. We interviewed 11 people. Their stories are varied, from setting up the first Caribbean style carnival, to becoming the first black bishop in Leeds to setting up a café selling authentic Caribbean food within the community. But their determination, resiliency and commitment to their chosen path is one in the same. The videos are being produced in collaboration with Leeds Trinity University which has kindly agreed to support the initiative. Katherine Blair, Senior Professional Practice Fellow and Broadcast Journalism Programme Leader at Leeds Trinity University,said of the project .“We are delighted to work with Unity on this exciting and timely project to celebrate the hugely positive impact the Windrush Generation and their descendants have made on the city. It is a privilege for Leeds Trinity University journalism students to have the opportunity to provide a medium for these inspirational people to tell their stories.”
