Celebrating ten years of the annual Sam Sharpe Lectures, this text is a collection of a decade's contribution from scholars, thinkers, activists, and ministers responding to the legacy of Sam Sharpe, a historical Jamaican hero. This text documents these moving, insightful and mobilising contributions and seeks to capture how Sharpe's legacy inspires action for justice in the 21st century. Rooted in a radical Jamaican narrative, The Sam Sharpe Lectures collectively demonstrate how Sharpe's legacy can inspire all people to be game-changers despite life's challenges. Sharpe was illiterate and enslaved, yet through a grounding in Christian faith, compassion, justice, and self-determination became an agent for transformation, and these lectures translate his legacy into tools for today's injustices.
