Carlton Green, author of High Hopes and Great Expectations and Bernard Westcarr, creator of Memoirs of A Peasant Boy, were both born in Jamaica and came to live in Gloucester in 1957 and 1960. They join Gail Johnson, whose book A Long Five Years explores the lives of older Black citizens in Gloucester, most of whom came to the City from Jamaica in young adulthood, to talk about their lives and experiences in the city. Marking the 75th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush and Black History Month, this special event is curated and chaired by Carole Francis-McGann of the St Ann Society of Gloucester.’
