The Trial of JJ Rawlings (Musical Drama and book launch)
The Trial of JJ Rawlings is a musical drama performance based on a 1986 book of the same title written by Kojo Yankah.
Anyone who has had the opportunity to read Kojo Yankah’s book cannot miss noticing the great admiration that the writer has for J.J. Rawlings, the much younger military officer under whose administration Yankah served in various capacities as editor of Daily Graphic, as minister of state and as member of parliament.
