Children of the Windrush

EThis episode is on how the so-called Windrush scandal affected both those who initially came to the UK and the next generation.

Chairing the debate is Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff, Deputy Editor at gal-dem magazine and author of the book Mother Country: Real Stories of the Windrush Children. Joining her on stage is Grime pioneer and MC Marci Phonix, who went viral for criticising MP Kwasi Kwarteng live on Channel 4 News and artist Rachelle Romeo, whose father was severely affected by the scandal.
