Chat, discussion, spokenword, about identity - a Windrush generated identity. Informal stories from the now middle-age offspring, that grew up in postwar Britain among the working classes of the inner cities. Jaqi Loye-Brown's anthology of the same name will be the starting point for all discussions in the series of these hybrid lives.
Writer, Jaqi Loye-Brown coined the phrase, a derivative of film genre, Kitchen Sink Drama, which depicted post war working class Britain, the lack of social mobility and opportunities, not dissimilar to the West Indian experience, a genre in itself.
