    Paperback Description:

    In The Groundings With My Brothers, Walter Rodney called Rastafari bredren, “the leading force of the expression of black consciousness in the Caribbean.” In an introduction to the work, Richard Small reflected on how fast in the 1970s the young Guyanese-born scholar had gained popularity in Jamaica and in the entire Caribbean as “the man who knew about Africa…and who would talk to anybody who wanted to hear him…”

    Although a well-respected professor of African Studies at the University of The West Indies at that time, Dr. Rodney preferred grass roots reasonings with Rasta and poor people in Kingston rather than mixing and mingling with socialites at the university. read more at The Abeng and My Conscious Pen
