Windrush and the Black Pentecostal Church in Britain Summary

Windrush and the Black Pentecostal Church in Britain: They came with Christianity and their Music: 2020 by Roy N Francis

In the 1980s, another equally important migration took place. Africans started coming to Britain. Roy explains what attracted them to the country, highlights the success they had, contrasts this with earlier Caribbean experiences and considers what is likely to happen in the future. This is a timely book which shines a light on British religious life rarely written about, but one that's been a great success story, the Caribbean and African Christian migration to Britain.
