Honouring LKJ

IN 1970s Britain, the sounds of Marley, Burning Spear and Linton Kwesi Johnson were the soundtrack for militant black youth protesting racism in that country.

On October 20, Johnson will receive the Order of Distinction for his contribution to the development of Jamaican music.

The OD, Jamaica’s fifth highest civic honour, will be awarded during the annual National Honours and Awards ceremony at King’s House.
