Linton Kwesi Johnson in Conversation

Music Room Event


Johnson’s exceptional life and enduring importance in Britain’s cultural history are underscored in his new book ‘Time Come’, which is published as part of his seventieth birthday celebrations.

Linton will discuss his reflections on the place of music in Caribbean and black British culture as a creative, defiant response to oppression, as well as his penetrating appraisals of music, film, and literature. He will also pay tribute to the activists and artists who inspired him to find his own voice as a poet and contributed to the struggle for racial equality and social justice.
