Colin Grant, “Too long have others spoke for us”
Marking Jamaica’s 50th year of independence, I will discuss Bageye at the Wheel, the final part of a trilogy of books examining African Caribbean life in the 20th century. The first, Negro with a Hat, my biography of Marcus Garvey, echoes Bageye’s Jamaican Bella Figura.
