  • La Empire Windrush era una nave che ebbe una parte rilevante nella storia multietnica del Regno Unito. Il 22 giugno 1948 la Empire Windrush approdò a Tilbury con 492 passeggeri provenienti dalla Giamaica, che speravano di cominciare una nuova vita nel Regno Unito. I passeggeri furono il primo grande gruppo di immigranti, provenienti dalle Indie Occidentali, che si trasferirono in UK dopo la Seconda guerra mondiale.Lo sbarco dei passeggeri divenne un episodio di grande importanza per la storia moderna della Gran Bretagna, simboleggiando l'inizio delle relazioni multiculturali moderne che avrebbero cambiato la società inglese in modo significativo negli anni a venire. Nel 1998, un'area pubblica a Brixton venne chiamata Windrush Square per commemorare il cinquantesimo anniversario dell'arrivo degli Indiani Occidentali.

British Caribbean people who came to the United Kingdom in the period after World War 2 are sometimes referred to as the Windrush generation.
