Recently the University of the West Indies (U.W.I.) hosted a symposium on the late reggae singer, Peter Tosh. The symposium focused on how Peter through his music included social commentary on education, politics, social and financial issues of the country. The audience were also informed about the circumstances that lead to the writing of songs like Johnny B. Goode, Where You Gonna Run and Glass House.

Among the panellists were Dr. EF Hutton, lecturer at U.W.I, Dr. Omar Davies, opposition spokesperson on the Ministry of Transportation, Copeland Forbes, former manager of Peter Tosh and son of the reggae legend, Dave Tosh. The event was also held in celebration of Tosh’s birthday.
