Windrush: Portrait of a Generation is a photo-story by award-winning photographer Jim Grover that captures the lives of the first generation of Caribbean migrants here in South London in the run-up to the 70th anniversary (on June 22nd 2018) of the arrival of the ship ‘Empire Windrush from Jamaica.

The ageing merchant ship brought 492 young hopefuls, nearly all of them Jamaican men, to help rebuild Britain in the aftermath of the war. This was a truly momentous moment in the evolution of Britain’s cultural life: the arrival of those first passengers and ensuing steady flow of migrants from the Caribbean, often referred to as the ‘Windrush generation’, was a major step in the creation of a multi-racial Britain.
