Bangladeshis have been living in Britain since the eighteenth century and they have changed people’s eating habits, making curry as British as fish and chips. But despite being one of the largest and most well established minority ethnic groups they are one of the most deprived in terms of health, living conditions and employment.
The Sixth Annual Conference on the Story of Bangladesh & Bangladeshi People, at Home and in the Diaspora, will be held in May and will hear from a number of speakers who will discuss the community in Britain.
There will be presentations on economic development, the construction of community and the role of mothers and grandmothers in the children’s learning, the restaurant trade, and a panel discussion on the future of the community. The conference will be followed by a stand up comedy show.
