Lecture on Reggae and Dancehall culture to be held in Belize City

Carolyn Cooper

"Sounds of Freedom: Reggae & Dancehall Culture in the Caribbean", is the title of a lecture which will take place tomorrow in Belize City. The lecturer is Dr. Carolyn Cooper a professor of Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of the West Indies' Mona Campus in Jamaica. She told us more about her background.

Dr. Cooper told us what the focus of tomorrow's lecture is.

We asked Dr. Cooper to share why there is still some stigma toward dancehall and why some people view it not as part of a culture .

Dr. Cooper says that with that since young people are moving toward music, new technologies that exist in our modern world, can allow for it to be incorporated into the formal school system. The lecture, which is free of cost, will take place at seven p.m. at the Bliss Center for the performing Arts.
