The University of Birmingham’s second Unfiltered video, and first Unfiltered podcast, is set in the context of the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush Generation from the West Indies.

April-Louise Pennant and Nando Sigona talk about their first impressions of “being British”, the positive of immigration, the negative of the recent scandal over threatened deportations of some of the Windrush Generation, and the need for more perspectives and cultural inputs in the UK.

I just think that “Britishness” should be inclusive, bearing in mind all the different people, the different histories, the different cultures which make it into what it is….

We should open up space. Windrush gives us the opportunity.
