St. Francis College

Created for the young and young at heart, this multi-talented trio creates an evening that’s a celebration of family and heritage.
On Page! – ‘Olympic Gardens’, Andrene Bonner (Jamaica)
“a powerful evocation of the life of an unwanted child. Bonner writes with a keen eye for telling events and an ear for the details of island life.”
On Screen! – ‘Saracca and Nation’, Merle Collins (Grenada)
“Saracca” commemorates the harvest. “Nation” refers to the “Big Drum Nation Dance”. These cultural performances owe their existence to inherited memory of Africa and to the “re-creation” within the Caribbean spaces.
On Stage! – ‘Spirit of Marcus Garvey’, Ron Bobb Semple (Guyana)
Pulling heavily on Garvey’s writings, this captivating presentation places the early twentieth century pan-Africanist’s message in a stark modern context.
