Don Letts: There and Black Again

Fri, 25 June 2021

Don Letts – filmmaker, musician, DJ, broadcaster, social commentator, husband and father – has always defied conformity. A British-born son of Windrush parents, he seamlessly pivoted between London’s punk and reggae scenes, earning his reputation as the ‘Rebel Dread’.

In “There and Black Again” (published by Omnibus Press) Don looks back on an exceptional life, and tells tales of him befriending Bob Marley after sneaking into his hotel, joining The Clash’s White Riot tour as manager of The Slits, and becoming one of the UK’s most highly regarded video directors during the MTV boom.

With reflections on Black Lives Matter and the highs and lows of personal relationships, “There and Black Again” includes moments of civil unrest, live music, humour and political struggle.
