Our Annual Membership Party

South Oxford Space

Last season we kinda out did ourselves! 

We celebrated the life of Jamaican folklorist and cultural icon, Louise Bennett-Coverly. We reveled in the artistry of literary masters Kamau Braithwaite (Barbados), E. R. Braithwaite (Guyana), and Anthony C. Winkler (Jamaica).  We dubbed with internationally acclaimed poets Linton 'Kwesie' Johnson (UK) and Malachi Smith (USA).

Last season we looked at the challenges of making mas and producing films, of writing poetry and novels; of introducing and preserving our culture in our 'new' home. 

But that was "last season".  So join us and what's in store for this season while continue... 

Tellin' We Own Story
