All about Miss Lou: Whatís Your Story?

February 5-December 18, 2011

Family

In the words of the illustrious Miss Lou, “howdy and tenki” (how do you do and thank you) for joining us as we honour her memory with an afternoon of storytelling. 

The Hon. Louise Bennett-Coverley O.M., M.B.E., Dip R.A.D.A., D. Lit (Hon) or simply "Miss Lou," wore many hats throughout her life: story teller, writer, poet, broadcaster and cultural icon. She was a major force in the preservation of Jamaican folklore and culture. She helped introduce and celebrate the descriptive and expressive language of “the people” to a broader audience, bringing Patois to the world.

Over the years, Harbourfront Centre has been proud to have had the opportunity to work closely with numerous Caribbean communities. To celebrate this work, we were given the great honour to have a permanent exhibition space created and dedicated to Miss Louise Bennett, Jamaica's Folklore and Cultural Ambassador. This space though would not be complete without the sounds of storytelling from around the world, and therefore we will be animating Miss Lou's Room with volunteer storytellers bringing their passion for the spoken word to our audiences; we need to see where we came from in order to know where we are going. The space will also be animated with stories from diverse cultural traditions. Not only do we want to hear and remember her stories but we want to hear yours, too!
