JaMinn With... Mutabaruka

 

JaMinn Link in association with the Caribbean Student Association at Macalester College invite you to join us for a discussion with Rastafarian Dub Poet Mutabaruka.

 

A brief reception will begin at 6:30 p.m.

 

Mutabaruka, born in the slums of Kingston, is a dynamic poet and prominent radio host. He emerged in the 1970s, during an upsurge of black awareness in Jamaica. Muta saw himself as a young revolutionary and began deepening his knowledge of Rastafarianism. Putting his emancipatory thoughts to paper, Mutabaruka has become one of Jamaica's leading voices for cultural liberation and political and economic freedom. His work, heavily influenced by his Rastafarian beliefs, largely focuses on sexism, politics, discrimination, and poverty. Mutabaruka is best known for his lively performances and has been recognized internationally for his dub poetry and unique views on institutionalized racism and religion.
