Upcoming Broadcasts

The Virgin Islands Literary Festival and Book Fair will feature several events highlighting the historic Crucian writer and activist, Hubert Harrison, the weekend of March 26-29. Saturday evening, March 28th, there will be a performance of David Edgecombe's play ?Hubert Harrison". Today we meet two gentlemen who diligently worked to bring the biography of a forgotten Virgin Islander to the forefront. One, an author, the other, a playwright, but they both wrote about Crucian-born Hubert Harrison, David Edgecombe, writer, director, instructor, and playwright has worked at the University of the Virgin Islands from 1990 to present. In 1992, he became director of the Reichhold Center for the Arts. He's "internationally known for several plays, including "Strong Currents" and "Coming Home to Roost". Upon returning to the Islands, David joined the faculty at the University of the Virgin Islands and became their artist-in-residence, premièring his play, "Heaven". Jeffrey Perry, formally educated at Princeton, Harvard, Rutgers, and Columbia, preserved and inventoried the "Hubert H. Harrison Papers" and helped to place them at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University and to develop the "Hubert H. Harrison Papers, 1893-1927: Finding Aid." He is the editor of A Hubert Harrison Reader (Wesleyan University Press, 2001) and the forthcoming "Writings of Hubert Harrison." Jeffrey will deliver a keynote address and a presentation discussing his work uncovering Harrison's writings and documenting his story and work in Perry's book, ?Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918? (Columbia University Press). Follow David and Jeffrey on Facebook.
