Celebrating the late great Jamaican Culturalist/Historian/Singer/Poet/Activist Dr. Louise Bennett Coverley aka Ms. Lou…..

“Miss Lou -- Dr. Louise Bennett Coverley has made a distinguished contribution to the development of Arts and Culture in both in Jamaica and the Caribbean region at large. Through her skillfully penned prose in Jamaican patois, Miss Lou has been able to raise the folk dialect to an art level now accepted and appreciated by all Jamaicans.” BajanBloom via Youtube

“Jamaica's Dr. Louise Bennett Coverley or 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.” BajanBloom via Youtube
