Rest in Peace, Miss Lou
I first learned about Louise Bennett's work from my friend Ifeoma Nwankwo as I was thinking about what I wanted from poetry and why the diasporic connections between women artists weren't as easy to learn about as those between men. I'm so glad to know what Bennett has achieved, often as a 'first'. May she rest in peace.
