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 to 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.
