Marking AntiUniversity Now 2019 & British Black Music Month 2019

Venue: Conway Hall (Bertrand Russell Room), 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL (Holborn)

History and music industry consultant Kwaku posits that there probably would not be the reggae genre or the global phenomenon that reggae has become, if it was not for the trafficking of Africans from Africa to the Caribbean, and the voluntary migration of Africans from the Caribbean to Britain!

Join this relaxed presentation on the development of reggae through migrations, over and beyond the one Windrush voyage from the Caribbean to Britain in 1948. Ample opportunity for participants to ask questions and contribute to the narrative.

This is an AntiUniversity Now 2019 and Spirit Of African Jubilee Year 1987-88 event, and a precursor to International Reggae Day UK: June 30 (Goldsmith’s) and July 1 (Brent): www.IRDUK.co.uk.

Kwaku is a music industry and history consultant. He’s the BTWSC/African Histories Revisited co-ordinator, and organiser of British Black Music Month in June/July, International Reggae Day UK on July 1, and the year-long Spirit Of AJY1987-88 programmes. His music and history programmes are posted respectively at www.BBM.eventbrite.com and www.AfricanHistoryPlus.eventbrite.com.
