Campfire Presents: Culture Clasher with legendary DJ and Film-maker, Don Letts

Returning as our guest for his second Campfire, Don Letts – DJ, Broadcaster, Film-Maker, Musician and Social Commentator – has spent a lifetime defying conformity, infusing his unique style and attitude into his work on both sides of the lens as he lives up to his reputation as the ‘Rebel Dread’.

Don’s exceptional life was recently captured in the book – ‘There and Black Again’ – telling his story through his work with others and co-starring the likes of Joe Strummer, Bob Marley, Paul McCartney, Nelson Mandela and Chuck D. in this refreshing and eye-opening story of a man who has never been afraid to tread his own path.

We were delighted to invite you to join us for what was a fascinating look into the unexpected world of Don Letts that began alongside Rock Against Racism and continues today as history repeats itself with Black Lives Matter.
