Join us at the GPI on Wednesday 6 March as we welcome the award winning author David Austin who’ll be sharing perspectives and readings from his two titles published by Pluto Press in 2018.
In Dread Poetry and Freedom; Linton Kwesi Johnson and the Unfinished Revolution Austin delves into themes of ‘poetry, political consciousness and social transformation’ through the lens of the Jamaican-British poet’s own literary activism.
Edited by Austin, Moving Against the System:The 1968 Congress of Black Writers and the Making of Global Consciousness is a collection of ‘black radical thought’ emanating from Montreal’s historic meeting of activist, influential Black voices including Stokely Carmichael, C.L.R. Jamnes, Rocky Jones, Alvin Poussaint and Walter Rodney.
