Show Notes

After 3 years of Reggae Uprising Podcast, we took a well deserved break, re-grouped and are back in full effect with spring in our step!

Our premier guest for 2023 is Alex Wheatle; award winning Author of 18 books, one of which being 'Uprising' his true life story which he toured across the UK as a one man play. In 2006 he spoke of his experiences in the BBC programme Battle for Brixton and in 2020 his life experience was made into a historical drama film featured as part of an anthology series called Small Axe directed by Steve McQueen.

In part 1 of this 2 part special Alex discusses his horrific experiences growing up in UK children's homes, re-uniting with his parents and the joy of Reggae that connected him to UK sound system culture.
