Rest In Power, Kamau Brathwaite


...it is not it is not it is not enough it is not enough to be free Of the red white and blue Of the drag, of the dragon...

Yesterday we said a sad goodbye to one of the greatest poets - Edward Kamau Brathwaite. He was a revoluntionary thinker, a poet extraordinaire, a playwright, a critic, and a historian. For many years, we have recognised and rewarded excellence in the NIFCA Literary Arts discipline with an award in his honour. The Kamau Brathwaite Award in Poetry is presented to the individual who, with turn of phrase and lilting verse, captures the essence of the Caribbean reality.

We extend sincere condolences to his wife and family. May he rest in peace!
