'The fundamental cure for poverty is not money but knowledge". Arthur Lewis and the Windrush Generation in Manchester.

Come along and discover the legacy of  Sir Arthur Lewis, the first Afro-Caribbean to be appointed professor at a British university and the first also to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1979, who worked tirelessly for the “Windrush Generation” in  Manchester in the 1940s.

Finding Peace in the Holy Land by Lauren Booth. Discussion with the author on her recently published memoir.

 

After her early faith is shattered by a mysterious fire, Lauren paddles the  shallows of celebrity life, where her political opinions pit her against the views of her brother-in-law, who just happens to be Prime Minister Tony Blair. How did a journalist seeking a scoop find inner peace in a conflict zone?
