The ongoing influence of the Caribbean Artists Movement

The artist Errol Lloyd was a member of the Caribbean Artists Movement (CAM), a collective founded in 1966 here in London by the pan-Caribbean trio of Edward Kamau Brathwaite from Barbados, John La Rose from Trinidad and Andrew Salkey from Jamaica. In an online article written by Lloyd for the Digital Learning wing of the British Library, the artist records the significance of CAM and its subsequent influence on Black British art and literature. The piece was published by the British Library as part of its recent exhibition Windrush: Songs in a Strange Land . We invite you to read, enjoy and share the link below. CAM lives!
