From EMANCIPATION to WINDRUSH 

The period from 1838 to 1948 saw some changes within the Caribbean. After Emancipation Day, 1st August, Africans women went out in search of  their sons and daughters who had been taken away to other sugar plantations, and who did not see their mothers and fathers again. The women re-united ‘the African family’ which had been dismantled by enslavers during the previous 200 years. For decades families struggled to make a living, but many made little or no economic progress.

WEST INDIANS AT THE PANAMA CANAL

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the official opening of the Panama Canal. Windrush Foundation will hold another commemorative event  at 6.30pm on

Tuesday 28 October 2014

 City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London, SE1 2AA

The Panama Canal, considered an engineering wonder of the world, has long been touted as an American achievement. Yet, without the sweat and blood of thousands of workers from the West Indies, the canal could not have been built. More than 50,000 Barbadians, Jamaicans, and other colonial subjects worked on the project, and very many died.
