about

Clayton Goodwin wandered in to Hayters sports reporting agency as a skinny student in 1961. He progressed from running errands to reporting on matches and embarked on a comprehensive career writing for the West Indian press, originally about his first love – cricket – but later on all manner of elements of culture and society. Some saw this white reporter from Kent as an unlikely pillar of the West Indian press community, but the commissions kept coming.

His unique position as a journalist has given him access and insight to some of the most important black musicians, sportsmen, politicians and more for the last 50 years. It’s not just the stars such as Millie Small and Usain Bolt that he is concerned with, but also the everyday people, and their small acts of welcome and friendship that find their way into his personal memories of the West Indian community.
