Additional Information:
Photographed by award-winning social documentary photographer Jim Grover, the exhibition comprises some 60 predominantly black and white photographs and accompanying narratives from many of the individuals featured.
The photographs are themed into groups of photo-stories that, together, encompass the daily lives of the Windrush generation.
The exhibition leads with an opening portrait and personal story from Alford Gardner, now aged 93 and one of the few surviving passengers from the original Empire Windrush voyage.
The exhibition will also be accompanied by a book of the same name, which will be on sale at the venue and available on Amazon.
