Don Letts – filmmaker, musician, DJ, broadcaster, social commentator, husband and father – has always defied conformity.

A British born son of Windrush parents, he seamlessly pivoted between London’s punk and reggae scenes earning his reputation as the ‘Rebel Dread’.

In his new book There and Black Again (published by Omnibus Press) he looks back on an exceptional life and tells tales of befriending Bob Marley after sneaking into his hotel, joining The Clash’s White Riot tour as manager of The Slits, and becoming one of the UK’s most highly regarded video directors during the MTV boom.

With reflections on Black Lives Matter and the highs and lows of personal relationships, There and Black Again includes moments of civil unrest, live music, humour and political struggle. It’s a refreshing and often unexpected story of a man who has never been afraid to disrupt, create, and tread his own path.
