John La Rose tributes

Today’s edition of the BBC World Service programme “Outlook” devotes a segment on Trinidad-born, UK-based activist John La Rose, who passed away in London on February 28, 2006. From the Outlook web site:

Known in the UK as an “elder statesman for the black community”, John La Rose was a well-known anti-colonial campaigner, poet, teacher, publisher and film-maker. He recently died at the age of 78 and now the BBC’s Matthew Bannister talks to three people who knew him well to find out more about the influence he had during his life and the impact he continues to make, even after death.

And if you happen to be Trinidad, “A Dream to Change the World,” a documentary on La Rose by Horace Ové, will be screened at CCA7, Fernades Compound, Laventille at 7:00pm. The event is free and open to the public.
