Description

"In collaboration with Rod Westmaas of Guyana SPEAKS, this event brings together performers, intellectuals and memoirists from across the generations of London’s Caribbean community. The afternoon will include Guyanese elder Joyce Trotman in conversation with BBC journalist Lainy Malkani, a spoken-word performance by the acclaimed Mr Gee, and a meditation on the contributions of the Windrush to British society by Dr. William ‘Lez’ Henry (formerly Lezlee Lyrics). Bringing these individuals together will create an afternoon of entertainment and vibrant discussion on the Caribbean diaspora."
