Louise Bennett on the Jamaican Language

Jamaica’s Dr. Louise Bennett Coverley, Miss Lou as she was affectionately called, was born in Kingston, Jamaica on 7th September, 1919. A cultural icon locally, regionally and internationally, Miss Lou was one of Jamaica’s leading comediennes and the ‘only poet who . . .really hit the truth about her society through its own language.’ (Source)
