Breaking Ground in the Caribbean
Saturday 29th April
18:00 – 19:30
From the creation of the world’s first independent black republic of Haiti in the early 19th century to the ungovernable runaway slave communities of Maroons in Jamaica to the fierce struggles to establish trade unions in 1930s Trinidad, rebellion is embedded in the fabric of Caribbean history.
No surprise, then, that subversion shimmers on the pages of the literature from the region — whether in terms of language, form or content.
Come and discover some of these authors as four writers of Jamaican heritage share their favourite Caribbean revolutionaries.
