History of the African-Caribbean Community in Huddersfield

Huddersfield Local History Lunchtime Club presents the free ‘History of the African-Caribbean Community in Huddersfield’ talk in Huddersfield Lending Library on Wednesday 19 September from 1pm – 2pm.

Huddersfield’s Heritage

The first people from the Caribbean arrived in England 70 years ago on the Empire Windrush after being invited by the British government to help with rebuilding and filling job vacancies after World War II. Natalie Pinnock-Hamilton and Denzil Nurse explore how these individuals and groups made a new life for themselves in Huddersfield. Denzil came to Huddersfield in 1961 and Natalie Pinnock Hamilton received an MBE in 1999 for services to community relations in Huddersfield.
