Enigma of Arrival 

As the 70th Anniversary marking the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush to the Tilbury Docks in Essex occurs this year, a temporary exhibition by the Barbados Museum & Historical Society, in partnership with the University of the West Indies and sponsorship from EULAC, will explore the “Windrush” phenomenon; from the recruitment of West Indian people to rebuild the “Mother Country” to the subsequent battles faced for acceptance and rights within community relations and British politics.

The exhibition entitled- Enigma of Arrival- will open to the public in February, 2019.
