Workshops on offer.

We have been notified of two free online workshops for Ealing families, funded by the Windrush Day Grant.  The workshops are aimed at families who have children attending Ealing schools and will be of great interest and value to all.

The first, ‘Britain’s Black History’, takes place on Tuesday 21st September from 4.30 – 5.30pm and is repeated on Tuesday 28th September from 6.00 – 7pm.  This will take place on Zoom.  To book your place, please go to trainingsupport@ealing.gov.uk

This is what promises to be a fascinating and informative presentation which will, ‘provide a potted history of Black Peoples’ presence in the United Kingdom starting from the Roman Empire and incorporating the Tudor, Georgian, Victorian eras and the arrival of the Windrush generation up to the present day.  The presentation includes aspects of British race relations and its impact on Black and White communities and covers the race riots in the 1950s and the national uprisings during the 1980s’.

The second workshop, ‘The Jamaican Men on the Empire Windrush – What Happened Next?’, takes place on Wednesday 22nd September from 4.30 – 5.30pm and is repeated on Wednesday 29th September from 6.00 – 7.00pm.  This will also take place on Zoom and to book, please go to trainingsupport@ealing.gov.uk

This workshop will detail what happened to the group of Jamaican men who were filmed arriving at Tilbury docks in 1948.  ‘It will detail life on board the Empire Windrush and the other passengers.  In addition, the housing and employment outcomes of the Windrush generation in general will be discussed and their contribution to Britain’s war effort and the rebuilding of Britain in the 1950s and 60s’.
