After the Second World War ended, Britain had desperately needed workers to rebuild the country, and it enlisted the help of its colonies to do so, passing the Nationality Act, which gave Commonwealth citizens the right to settle in Britain. So, on a Tuesday, 22nd June 1948, a former German cruise ship, the Empire Windrush, steamed up the Thames to the Tilbury Dock, London, where she disembarked some 500 hopeful settlers from Kingston, Jamaica... it was the beginning of a new, multicultural Britain.
