KAISO CONTRIBUTION WITH CHALKIE
St George – Educator and eight-time Calypso Monarch of Trinidad & Tobago, Mighty Chalkdust, will be in Grenada next week on an assignment with the Open Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI).
Chalkdust, whose real name is Hollis Liverpool, will be the first presenter in the inaugural "Carol Bristol Distinguished Lecture.' He holds a PhD in history and ethnomusicology, and is an Assistant Professor at the University of the Virgin Islands.
The focus of his Grenada presentation will be on calypso and its contribution to national development, said Dr Nicole Phillip-Dowe. "We are inviting the general public to come out and to be an active part of this lecture. There'll be questions and answers afterwards," said Phillip Dowe, head of the UWI Open Campus.
