Published: Wednesday | August 12, 2009
Jamaica's Amina Blackwood-Meeks has been selected to take part in a Scottish storytelling festival from October 24 to November 1 as part of the celebration of the Scottish Year of Homecoming.
Olivia Grange, Jamaica's minister of culture, who had recommended Blackwood-Meeks, said the raconteur's prowess was well known.
Grange told the Scottish Storytelling Centre that Black-wood-Meeks, a former Gleaner columnist, "will bring to your programme the very best of Jamaican tradition" in the area of storytelling.
