Long Time Catch Up

LONG TIME WALK ON WATER (VII)Sifting through old photos. Keywords: Empire Windrush, Caribbean immigrants, London 1960s. These are not just pictures. This is my history. My grandmother’s face among them, perhaps, in a photo taken somewhere, on display in a museum, or in a private collection bequeathed to (grand)children for whom such photos are possibly nothing more than quaint. They were brave people. If it weren’t for them, I would not be enjoying all the opportunities I have today. Long Time Walk on Water is my way of saying thank you. I’ll say it again: Thank you. I will never forget.
