Fi Dem II

The second work in the Fi Dem series, began in 2018, was released on 22nd June 2019. This June 22nd is the first National Windrush Day, a public holiday created by the government after many years of campaigning by the Black Caribbean migrant community and an extension of the wider reparations movement in the UK. A potential pacifier in the face of The Windrush Scandal no doubt. Minott reflects on this national holiday which sits in the middle of UK Pride Month and seems to get lost amongst its longer established contemporary. What does this mean for those like her, Black British first and second generation children and grandchildren of Windrush migrants who are LGBTQI+? This work also questions whose labour is it to remember this day? More specifically, the work of her maternal Grandmother Doreen Haynes, a nurse of 52 years.
