Island’s Edge: Readings, Music, Photos, and Dance Celebrating Jamaican Street Culture

Thursday, March 3 , 2011 at 8:00pm

Join writer Anicée Gaddis, journalist Knox Robinson and poet Marcel Anthony Logan for an evening of perspectives and creative musings on Jamaican culture today. Photographer Alessandro Simonetti will make a special introduction of his new book Small Kings and
host a slide show of his work. Small Kings documents Passa Passa, a legendary street party in Jamaica, just months before the conflicts in downtown Kingston during May, 2010, shut down the party and made Tivoli Gardens headline news around the world. Entertainment will be provided by the Blackgold dancers with a special guest deejay.
