Jess Rahman – Gonzalez
Peter de Graft-Johnson
Roger Robinson is a dozen men. Or more. He was born in Hackney, lived in Trinidad, but spent most of his adult life in London. He is a writer, poet, singer, and musician. And he is so much more. A teacher, a scholar, a thinker, an activist, a man of letters. He is one of the few unrelenting and constant observers of life in Brixton, of post-riot/pre-Brexit Britain. He is a serious man with a great sense of humour.
