"The Hub of the Dub!"

In the words of poet and master of ceremonies extraordinaire, Clifton Joseph, Kingston Ontario (yes, our Kingston!) was "The Hub of the Dub" during last weekend's amazing Dub Poetry Festival (http://dubpoetscollective.com/). "Reloading the Can(n)on," taken from Dub maestro Klyde Broox's poem of the same title, the festival transformed Kingston into Jamaica briefly over the course of three days of performance, cultural jamming, and scholarly sessions. Radio Bandung reflects on the event, the debates, and the radical poetics on offer. In addition, we speak with Dr. Afua Cooper, this year's Robert Sutherland speaker, Governor General award nominated historian, and dub poetess on the subjects of race, history, and art. Check out her various books and collections of poetry: http://www.afuacooper.com/home_page.html

Radio Bandung is the permanent on-air hub of the dub!
