The book, a collaboration between Preston Black History Group (PBHG) and UCLan’s MIDEX and IBAR, features 11 narratives about the lives of women and men from the Windrush generation who came to Lancashire in the 1950s and 60s. In each chapter, they discuss their upbringing, departure from the Caribbean and arrival in Britain, social and family life in Preston, reflections on the meaning of home and belonging, and challenges of finding work and accommodation. They tell of suffering and overcoming adversity and prejudice, as well as community self-organisation over the decades and how sport, religion, and workplace environment forged lasting friendships.
