Linton Kwesi Johnson is a leading figure in British, Caribbean and World literature–and a legendary reggae artist. How do these two combine in his writing? This event will give Norwegian audiences a special opportunity to hear Linton Kwesi Johnson read his poetry and discuss his unique perspective on the relationship between music and poetry.

This is the first event in the new Black Poesis series organized by Louisa Olufsen Layne in the Literature, Rights and Imagined Communities research group at ILOS-Dept. of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages, University of Oslo. The live conversation will be hosted by Postdoctoral Research Fellow Louisa Olufsen Layne and Associate Professor Bruce Barnhart. Funded by: Fritt Ord and Anders Jahre Stiftelsen.
