Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies presents the digital poster exhibition 'Enigma of Arrival'
To celebrate Black History Month this digital exhibition aims to create awareness about the active migration crisis in Britain by having a specific focus on Caribbean migration from the 1940s to the 1970s. With the recent 70th Anniversary of the MV Empire Windrush landing, it aims to serve as a medium for informing the general public across the Caribbean and in the UK about the current state of affairs surrounding Caribbean migrants.
Using interpretive panels the audience is introduced to the historical parameters and scope of Caribbean post-World War II migration to Britain and its legacy amongst later generations both at home and abroad.
The exhibition themes include:
– Caribbean Conditions Pre-migration
– Arrival in UK
– Accommodation, Settling-in Conditions, and Cultural Integration Caribbean Resettlement
– Generational Experiences
This exhibition is made possible through the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies (Goldsmiths) in collaboration with EU LAC Museums Project, The University of West Indies and the Barbados Museum & Historical Society
