Or should she remain working for the family who employ her and the ‘adopted’ English children she has raised? The monologue, ‘Departure Lounge’ is based on research into the oral histories of Britain’s Filipino community. It was performed at the British Museum in 2006.

Childhood Memories presents the stories (real voices) of Caribbean people and their childhood memories. A research document. Age coding 11-16 Subjects: Citizenship, Drama, Modern History. In both Word and PDF formats. 8 pages. 3 supporting images. It is the oral history of four Caribbean women. Three women are born in the Caribbean, and one in England, during the 1960s. They talk about being left behind while their parents went to England to work and create a better life. We hear about their experiences in coming to England and trying to fit into the British way of life, going to school, being bullied, feeling different and accepting differences. Yvonne tells us, “The main difference was the weather, but there was a lack of freedom. Here everything is inside the house. In Jamaica, we have got a big yard and a shower.” We also hear the resentment of being given the responsibilities of looking after younger siblings born in this country. Mealta states, “I had to go buy the paraffin; I had to clean the house; I had to do all the washing, wash all the nappies because when I came, I had two brothers, Christopher and Patrick, that I did not know about." Billie Ann, says " I was reforming a relationship with my mother because those bonding years had not taken place" This was a common problem with many children left behind and one that all communities will identify and share. Finally, we hear from Zoë Elaine, born in Northwest London, and her coming of age in challenging social injustice. This is a useful resource for teachers and students to develop their knowledge and understanding of the global movement of families and communities. It is firmly rooted in the tradition of oral storytelling about the Windrush generation. Parents from all communities can use this resource to help in-home learning, and to prompt conversations around the dinner table about family life, identity, and belonging in the ‘new normal.’ Teachers can use it in the classroom and adapt and create their unique activities including comprehension questions and unite research in support of Citizenship, Drama, And Modern History studies.
