Categories: Caribbean, Latin America, North America, Cuba, Jamaica, U.S.A., Arts & Culture, Ethnicity & Race, Migration & Immigration, Politics

Florida-based Jamaican writer Geoffrey Philp discusses some of the ideas he plans to incorporate into his presentation for the “Imagine Miami” lecture series [1], which addresses issues of identity. Among the things he plans touch upon are “a reflection on Miami’s geographical location as a port/frontier city and as a Latin/Hispanic/Caribbean city in North America (Kingston 21, Havana North)” and questions of race and colour.
