Let's Talk British Colonialism

27 minutes

On the anniversary of Pakistan’s independence from British colonial rule, sit down with Immigrantly as we give you a brief history lesson on British colonialism over India and Pakistan. How exactly did it start? What were the political implications of British colonialism? What was life like under colonial rule? What did it create for generations to come? In this incredibly informative episode, Immigrantly, in collaboration with Their Stories, breaks down the Colonial subcontinent and analyzes the migration patterns that resulted. It’s much more complex than you think. Learn about the facts of how exactly it played out as well as the livelihoods that it disrupted and stole. Hear the story of someone who lived under British colonial rule, narrated by his granddaughter, Yusra Hussain. Historically relevant, it’s an episode that is packed with the political and personal narrative. Produced and Hosted by Saadia Khan   Written by Yudi Liu, Yusra Hussain   Edited by Tom Whelan   Music by Evan Ray Suzuki
