Current Project

Pathfinder - A Hero's Welcome

Pathfinder - A Hero’s Welcome is a Windrush generation story. The story, based on real events, is peppered with verbatim testimony from archival material associated with Afro-Caribbean British heritage.

The story uncovers hidden layers of London’s cultural, historical, and geographical landscape. A Hero’s Welcome tells the story of a Jamaican-born RAF war hero’s post-WWII adventures.  Answering the call for British Commonwealth citizens to help with Britain’s post-war regeneration, Barnsley Peterson boards the Empire Windrush for a new life in England.  However, the hero’s welcome he expects is harder to come by than he anticipates.
