Fifty years on from the Ugandan Asians' arrival
The expulsion of the Asian population of Uganda in August/September 1972 was a key moment in Leicester’s recent history. Many of those affected established themselves in Leicester, and over time contributed to its reputation as a successful multicultural city.
To mark the 50th anniversary, the University of Leicester and partners are hosting a series of public events on the recent history of migration to Leicester.
In addition to short presentations by experts, and by prominent members of the Leicester communities concerned, we welcome audience contributions on their experience of migration. Come along and share your story.
Organised by the University of Leicester’s Migration, Mobility and Citizenship Network, and by its Unit for Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement (DICE).
Registration details for the remaining events will follow in due course.
Please note, our event on Thursday 15 September has been postponed until Thursday 13 October. Full details can be found on our news story.
