5-time award-winning Colourful Radio is to launch a brand new radio show titled The Voices of Windrush on Thursday 30th May 2019.
Anchored by journalist Sinai Fleary and Windrush Campaigner Patrick Vernon OBE, the show aims to highlight how the hostile environment policy contributed to the Windrush Scandal, the legacy of the Windrush Generation and what people can do to seek help. Over the coming weeks the show will hear from key voices in and around the community regarding legal advice, the compensation scheme, deportations and Windrush campaigners.
Commenting on the news of The Voices of Windrush on Colourful Radio, the station's founder, Mr Kofi Kusitor MBE said: "This is more than a radio show. It's a community service, and a crucial one at that, which does more than offer yet another platform just for talking."
Co-Host and journalist, Miss Sinai Fleary said: "It's an absolute honour to be asked to be involved in this show. My parents are from the Caribbean and the Windrush Scandal has affected not only me but many people I know. I hope to be able to add my voice and opinions on the subject but to also seek the answers that the community want and deserve."
Co-host and campaigner Patrick Vernon OBE, said: "It is great that Colourful Radio are commissioning a series of programmes reflecting on the issues connected with Windrush Scandal and the legacy of the Windrush Generation. The community and the public still need to be informed and also support the wider campaign on justice to the victims of the hostile environment and ensuring that national Windrush Day becomes an permanent fixture in acknowledging our contribution to Britain since WW2."
The Voices of Windrush airs from Thursday, 30th May 2019 at 9am (GMT) and can be heard on the Colourful Radio Network across the UK, at colourfulradio.com, on TuneIn, and on connected devices.
