The lecture will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the so-called “Rodney Riots” which shook Jamaica in October 1968 after the government there banned the Guyanese Black Power activist from entering the island. Professor Lewis will respond to questions from the audience after his lecture.
The presentation is part of the Marcus Garvey Rootz Extravaganza Lecture Series.
The special Marcus Garvey to Walter Rodney lecture is presented by the Rootz Foundation Inc., in association with the Broward County Library and the Nova Southeastern Alvin Sherman Library.
Entry is free.
