We Are All Migrants

We Are All Migrants

Some say carnival isn’t political, but for one troupe in Leeds, it’s a call to action. In 2017, Harrison Bundey Mama Dread’s Masqueraders declared proudly that we are all migrants, flooding the streets with a sea of colour. But beneath this vibrant city there lies a darker story of migration when, for one Nigerian man, the promise of new life in England turned into an untimely death. “We Are All Migrants” carries a message of remembrance and solidarity with all migrants who have suffered injustice in the world and celebrates the joy of diversity.
