The Arrival of East Indians in the Caribbean – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The Arrival of East Indians in the Caribbean – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine


If you took a plane from JFK Airport to Calcutta the chances are you will be tired by the time you get there. On May 5th 1838 the history of the Caribbean changed dramatically as 396 East Indians landed on the shores of British Guiana.

This was no joyride and there was no time for niceties. The journey from Calcutta to British Guiana was fraught with hardships, and like the slave ships of an earlier era there were deaths on the way.

22nd June 1948: MV Empire Windrush arrives at Tilbury Docks in London

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May joined more than 2,000 others at Westminster Abbey in London on Friday to recognize the contributions to the country by immigrants from the English-speaking Caribbean and elsewhere invited in 70 years ago to help rebuild its war-ravaged economy. But it was more an act of contrition over the way the British government treated these people during its own crackdown on illegal immigration, giving birth to the Windrush scandal.
