Alford Dalrymple Gardner, Howard Gardner  Colin Grant: Beyond Windrush image

Alford Dalrymple Gardner is one of the few living passengers to have travelled on the Empire Windrush, which sailed from Jamaica to Tilbury Docks. Finding Home: A Windrush Story is his extraordinary memoir, shared alongside his son Howard Gardner. Colin Grant’s memoir, I’m Black So You Don’t Have to Be, explores the Black British experience, told through the lives of eight family members. He joins them in conversation on the 75th Windrush anniversary. Chaired by Lisa Williams.
