Windrush, Migration & Reggae
Marking AntiUniversity Now 2019 & British Black Music Month 2019
Venue: Conway Hall (Bertrand Russell Room), 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL (Holborn)
Date: June 17, 6-8pm
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.
