A new book about a Windrush passenger who came to Nottingham is being launched by Bishop James Stapleton and his daughter Esther Stapleton-Stone.
James is the Chairman of the Windrush Awards. The organisation acknowledges people who have served by promoting unity and understanding in Nottingham City's communities. William Chong was one such individual who received a special lifetime award for sharing his story with Nottingham school children.
The book is entitled ‘The Life of William Chong, a Windrush Passenger’. The book documents William’s journey from Kingston Jamaica as a 19 year old landing at Tilbury Docks, London. His story is filled with adventure, challenges and triumph. It also provides historical references to give a broad understanding of the Windrush era, from 1948 to the present day Windrush scandal.
To obtain a pre-release copy of the book for £20 (inc. postage and packaging) or express your interest in attending the virtual book launch on Tuesday 22 June (2021) from 7pm, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
