Sparrow and De Girls - Mervyn Taylor - Symposium to examine Sparrow’s career

Mervyn Taylor

Four distinguished presenters brought different perspectives on Mighty Sparrow’s phenomenal career at the symposium focused on the legendary artist, that took place Friday evening, April 8 at Medgar Evers College, presented by the Trinidad & Tobago Folk Arts Institute, in collaboration with the Medgar Evers College School of Professional & Community Development.

The four presenters were billed as Prof. Lawrence Waldron, who teaches art at City College of CUNY; Winthrop Holder, an educator who is also author of the Classroom Calypso: Giving Voice to the Voiceless; poet Mervyn Taylor, whose poetry continuously engages the Caribbean culture spectrum; and attorney Khalick Hewitt, whose avid interest and research in calypso and steel band dates back to his youthful days in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
