You are warmly invited to our annual commemoration of the birth of
Martin Carter. This year we will feature a short sequence of poems
published in New World Magazine in 1964, entitled Jail Me Quickly.

The sequence is as follows:
Black Friday1962 (‘were some who ran one way…’)
After One Year (‘So jail me quickly, clang the illiterate door…’)
What Can a Man Do More (‘How utter truth when falsehood is the truth?’)
Where are Free Men? (‘O we have endured such absurd times’)
Childhood of a Voice (‘Imagine it, the childhood of a voice…’)

The recital has been pre-recorded and lasts half an hour. It will air on YouTube at the time stated and be available to view at any point after that.
Dr Gemma Robinson provides an introduction to the collection and insights into each individual poem.
Readers are Konyo Addo, Jasper Adams, Stephanie Bowry, Stanley Greaves and Lloyd Marshall.

Moray House Trust has spent a decade working to promote Guyanese culture and public discourse. We believe that a culture thrives and
develops where ideas circulate and are robustly debated and interrogated.
