Supporting Dubversive People: Christiane D & Dutty Bookman Do Their Thing
One of the most dubversive folks IR had the pleasure to come across in Jamaica was a writer Dutty Bookman . We were impressed with empathy with indigenous rights and indigenous philosophy and his ability to relate it to the Jamaican context . You can watch a practical example of that here .Bookman has just written a book entitled “Tried & True ;Revelations Of A Rebellious Youth “
He feels it “ most resembles a combination of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and Jon Lee Anderson’s Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life “
We liked what he wrote about the motivation for him writing the book
“During the entire process of writing Tried & True: Revelations of a Rebellious Youth, I kept asking myself WHY I dared to think that my life experiences would even matter to other people. Memoirs of interest are usually written by people with some sort of celebrity status. I am far from a celebrity, yet that is exactly why I thought I should release this book to the public. My intention is for people in my age group (and younger) to read my story and realize that they can be quite ordinary while accomplishing extraordinary things. I believe that I am an example of a good soul with good intentions and, because of that, I have received great blessings. By printing my story, the impact on the reader has transformative potential.”
Dutty is currently raising funds to print and launch his book on the site indie Go Go . Please support his efforts here
