One of the country’s most prominent Windrush campaigners is holding an event at Muswell Hill Library next week.
Arthur Torrington CBE - who co-founded the Windrush Foundation in 1995 - will be giving a talk commemorating Windrush Day on Monday June 24.
George Danker, chair of the Friends of Muswell Hill Library said: "This talk will focus on the history of Windrush and show how Caribbean men and women helped to rebuild Britain after World War II.
"Arthur Torrington CBE is a community advocate, and co-founder - with the late Sam B. King MBE - of the Windrush Foundation."
The Windrush Foundation promotes positive race and community relations and publicises the contributions of Carribbean men and women who have settled in the UK.
