The Public Policy Center is proud to support this lecture hosted by the Iowa City Foreign Relations Council.

From Lorna Goodison’s third world woman as mystic healer to Reggae and Dancehall pulsing through Kingston nights, Jamaica moves to its own drum beat, making a dance out of its troubles. It is a textured land with its own struggles, secrets and yet an almost inexplicable capacity for lifting the spirit. With speaker Yashika Graham, IWP Fall Resident.
