‘Reggae Groundings’ in Guyana


The Guyanese intellectual icon, Walter Rodney, set an important example in his time, connecting directly with people, even society’s disenfranchised, in order to balance the influence of his academic network. His classic book, Groundings with My Brothers, is an important text that should be known to every Caribbean generation now and onward.

In this spirit, and with a desire to be better acquainted with my Caribbean family, I am pleased to be embarking on the upcoming Reggae Groundings tour of Guyana, Rodney’s homeland and the base for the CARICOM Secretariat, which I hope to visit while there. Help me spread word to all Guyanese massive in Linden, Berbice, Georgetown and surrounding areas! I am coming to deliver potent, uplifting roots reggae music and important word-sounds in the spirit of unity, love and progress.
