As part of our International Women’s Day programme, join poetess Empressjai for a talk celebrating the life of Nanny of the Maroons.

Nanny of the Maroons is a national hero in Jamaica and was part of a group of enslaved people who managed to set up their own thriving communities after escaping from slavery in the Mountains of Jamaica. Her incredible story has been passed down the generations through oral histories.

Prepare to be inspired.

This event is part of our International Women's Day event series.
