What the Deejay Said : A Critique from the Street

What the Deejay Said : A Critique from the Street

Punch are honoured to present Dr William Henry (Reggae dancehall veteran , educator, orator and accomplished author also known as Lezlee Lyrix) as part of the BASS Festival. His international acclaim as a public speaker and his street creditability from pioneering the British Reggae Dancehall scene are mixed together to create a dynamic and powerful speaker.

This event will showcase his observation of Jamaican Culture moulding the Black cultural politics of Britain in the 1960s and 70s published in his autobiographical account “What The Deejay Said”.

Dr Lez Henry’s challenging social commentary on the hidden voice of Black Britain is what has made him such a poignant observer of British Culture and this very special event will celebrate the very first book ever written by a Reggae Dancehall Deejay.

During the evening Dr Henry will give a presentation of the book and also sign copies.

“What the Deejay Said is groundbreaking in its insightfulness and provocative in its telling.” Rey Brown Black Britain

The event will be held on Saturday 9th June
6pm- 8pm and entry is free.
