Brixton Village x Windrush 75

20230622

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Windrush, the ship that brought the first post-war migrants from the Caribbean to Britain in 1948. To celebrate this historic occasion, Brixton Village unveiled an awe-inspiring mural honouring the courage, hard work and resilience of the Windrush generation.

Designed by renowned local graffiti artist Bunny, the mural captures the indelible legacy of the Windrush generation, whose many contributions have helped to create the rich culture of Brixton and beyond. The colourful display showcases the inspiring stories of 21 trailblazing figures who were children of the Windrush community, such as Grace Jones, Gus John, Jah Shaka, Benjamin Zephaniah and many others. Through the mural, visitors will have the opportunity to learn the real stories about the people who have redefined British culture, with the aim of fostering a deeper appreciation for the Windrush Generation.

Visitors can come and see the mural in the Brixton Village Courtyard.
