Ebony Rockers, over the years, operated as a cooperative with a variety of young people in the band. They included: Junior Simmonds, Jenny Simmonds, Beverley Royal, Jiggy, Willie White, Joe Salmon(Skippy), MC Tenja, Ebonie G, Lisa Johnson, Michael Horn, Rosalyn Benn, Rachel and Chris Ricketts.
The band have also been back in the recording studio working with producer Martin White on a new single called “Black History… No Murder” to co-incide with the month, and hope to record other tracks for an EP release in the new year.
As Don explained: “Black History Month is an opportunity to emphasise the achievements of black communities. Very often in education and the media there There are important facts that that people don’t know.”
“Music is one of those things which brings people together and older black people have played their part in making that an important aspect of life and living here.”
