This essay offers a discussion of Rex Nettleford's classic Mirror Mirror: Identity, Race, and Protest in Jamaica. It aims to situate the book in the wake of the Jamaican 1960s, both as a way of coming to terms with the first decade of political sovereignty and at the same time as a way of anticipating an unknown future to come.
