257 women were on board the Empire Windrush.
188 of them travelled alone. The Wasafiri Issue 94 includes a special section on Windrush women, and my reviews of Grace Nichols’ and Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze’s books.
I have invitations, which alas I can’t use. But hey friends in London why don’t you consider:
1. ‘Windrush Women – Past and Present’ to launch Wasafiri 94, 2018 at the British Library on 25 June 2018 at 7pm (door opens at 6.30pm).
Tickets can be purchased from the British Library – https://www.bl.uk/events/windrush-women-past-and-present
2. Gladly, my poetry film ‘Skirt’ will be screened at Poetry Café, London on Sunday, June 9.
22 Betterton Street, WC2H 9BX, 3-5 pm
