‘Supermarket Blues’ by Hazel Campbell

The late Hazel Campbell shares socio-political histories with us in a way that returns to the heart of the matters seamlessly. ‘Supermarket Blues’ looks towards another level of scarcity, to searching shelves for food – problems beyond the money stretch. 

First published in Woman’s Tongue, 1985. Collected in Jamaica On My Mind, Peepal Tree Press, 2019
