14th Annual Walter Rodney Lecture

The Institute of Caribbean Studies will host the 14th annual Walter Rodney Lecture on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at the Neville Hall Lecture Room (N1), UWI, Mona. The Lecture will feature the inaugural screening in Jamaica of the film, “Songs from Walter Rodney’s Choir” by Robert Lalljie. Professor Rupert Lewis, UWI, Mona will deliver a Reflection on the film.
 
The annual lecture marks the anniversary of the “Rodney Riots” of October 16, 1968 and celebrates the academic and activist legacy of Walter Rodney, a Guyanese, who graduated from the UWI, Mona campus, in History. He later lectured there and was banned from Jamaica in October 1968 - an exclusion that led to student protest marches and more generalised demonstrations in Kingston. Walter Rodney published a book on his Jamaican experience entitled ‘The Groundings with my Brothers,’ in which he shows himself to be a pioneering public intellectual.
 
The public is invited to attend. For further information please contact the Institute of Caribbean Studies at 512-3228 or e-mail: icsmona@uwimona.edu.jm
