Following on from the two-day convention ‘Artist, Mentor, Good friend, Activist: Andrew Salkey a Man of Many Hats I'm delighted to welcome you to a night of readings, tales and dialog celebrating the life and work of the Jamaican poet, author, broadcaster and activist, Andrew Salkey (1928–1995). Andrew Salkey was a co-founder of the Caribbean Artists Motion, a author, a poet, and a instructor. He embodied the Black Radical Custom in his writing, his politics, and in his help for different inventive people.

This occasion displays on the depth and breadth of Salkey’s work and his myriad of pursuits with contributions and reflections from his son Jason Salkey, the poet Linton Kwesi Johnson and the author, Gwen Strauss, who each regarded Salkey as a pal and mentor. The poet, Raymond Antrobus, talks about Salkey’s poetry and the way it influenced his personal work and Eric Huntley, an early writer of Salkey’s works, seems to be again at their friendship.
