The objective of Cultural Inclusion is to demonstrate that persons with disabilities have made (and continue to make) vital contributions to Jamaican culture. The central argument, therefore, that persons with disabilities have made a vital contribution to Jamaican culture fills a critical gap in disability studies, ethnomusicology, and other scholarly research programmes.
A solid piece of work that represents a major scholarly achievement, Cultural Inclusion should be a starting point for other researchers to look at areas from the entertainment industry where persons with disabilities have made significant contributions. Importantly also, this pioneering work will provide real data and research analysis for policy makers and decision makers at both the public and private level.
Cultural Inclusion will appeal to a diverse audience, as it provides short and lively biographies both known and less well-known Jamaican musicians.
