Dreaming Rivers
Evoking the colonial experience of Caribbean immigrants in Britain, DREAMING RIVERS presents an impressionist rendering of a middle-aged Black on the past, present and future from her death bed. Attending her are three young people who discuss the loss of the matriarch as a metaphor for their Caribbean identity that is fragmented with the passing of each generation.
Reviews
"..remarkable for its syncretic use of Afro-Caribbean rituals and Christianity, the Creole language, and other Atlanticisms which indicate that Britishness is no longer the terrain of whiteness and Christianity." - Manthia Diawara, BLACK AMERICAN LITERATURE FORUM
