Louise Bennett-Coverley (“Miss Lou”)

Poet and performer extraordinaire, Miss Lou made Jamaicans proud of their patwa, and has even been described as the “mother of Jamaican culture” for her efforts in legitimizing authentic Jamaican culture. If you’ve not yet heard some of her work, start with “Colonization in Reverse”. โ€”Erin MacLeod
