Local researcher Tamara Brown will be discussing her research and dissertation which was influenced by her late grandmother’s booklet ‘The Tapestry’, which was based on her reminiscences of experiences in the West Indies and immigrating to Britain in the 1960s. Tamara also will be looking at the impact of the ‘Flamingo Magazine’, using to promote West Indian settlement and integration in Britain, while also using anti-communist propaganda in response to threats from the Cold War.
