Jamaican writer and activist Erna Brodber is a major voice in Caribbean literature whose work addresses the history, memory and identity of the African Diaspora. Her novels include Nothing’s Mat (2014); Louisianna (1997); Myal (1988); and Jane and Louisa Will Soon Come Home (1980). She has also created blackspace, a place for performances, ceremonies of remembrance and “groundings” which aim to recovery lost histories and engage what she calls “the unfinished task of emancipation.”
