Black History Month South, after being delayed by the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic is now pleased to present Southampton - Home From Home, a film marking the Mayflower commemoration through the lens of migration.

2020 was the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower featuring an international programme of events, joining 12 cities and four nations across the UK, Netherlands and USA.
