Sharing Chesterfield Black Stories from the Windrush Generation



Chesterfield African Caribbean Community Association have joined forces with Chesterfield Museum to launch a new exhibition that will help residents learn about the history and experiences of Chesterfield’s black community. It aims to tell the story of Chesterfield’s Windrush Generation, highlighting the challenges faced when establishing new lives in Chesterfield and how these were overcome.

The Earth Museum is privileged to have permission to publish two stories from this exhibition shared by Reuben Redhead and Mary Greenaway.
