Born in Ghana, West Africa, Yaw moved to Milton Keynes after living in London. He shares that his first impressions of the area were of a welcoming city, and he recalls his thoughts that the city was built as a place for people who needed to move somewhere new, a city of second chances. He shares how Milton Keynes was not a diverse city when he arrived.
This HLF-funded project celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes. We interviewed more than 50 people who have made the town their home, who shared their memories, experiences, and hopes for the future. For more information about the project, visit mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
