Remembering Miss Lou the Cultural Icon

September 7, 2009 was the 90th birthday of the Hon. Louise Bennett Coverley, the Jamaican cultural icon more popularly known as Miss Lou. Miss Lou has had a positive impact on the respect and appreciation I have for the Jamaican language and culture. I really do believe that the Jamaican culture is a very good foundation upon which we can build a viable entertainment economy, therefore, it is on this premise that I pause to remember the contribution of Miss Lou to reinforcing that foundation. I hope you can enjoy her in these youtube videos as much as I have. The Jamaica Gleaner carried the articles Queen of Creole still reigns and Ode to 'Miss Lou' in tribute to her work. They give very good insight into how her work has contributed to the foundation upon which we can build, enjoy!
