After a successful launch in April, BCA Book Club returns for its bi-monthly spot to spotlight important and celebrated novels, texts, and literary works. The next meet-up will take place on Wednesday 20 July, 6.30pm – 8.30pm.
We have selected two non-fiction texts inspired by the current exhibition ‘Rastafari in Motion’. Len Garrison’s Black Youth, Rastafarianism, and the Identity Crisis in Britain and Velma Pollard’s Dread Talk: The Language of the Rastafari that both investigate the emergence and influence of the Rastafari movement in Britain with a particular focus on identity, aesthetics, and language.
£3 to book your space, and free entry for Friend Members (email: membership:@bcaheritage.org.uk). Spaces are limited and early booking is advisable.
