Paul Stephenson OBE, Edson Burton, Miles Chambers, Marvin Rees and Lillian Allen - Jamaica 50!

Friday 19th October 2012 6pm - 7pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Imagine a culture at its pivotal moment. A truly remarkable panel takes the temperature of Jamaican creative words as 'the islands' turn 50. Through performance and debate we look back at landmark moments, and ahead to future challenges. A 'state of the nation' celebration, yes, but are there darker trends to watch for? With Ujima Radio 98 FM.

Tickets: £5
