As a Nation prepares for revelry , fun , healing, junping, dancing and prancing, many heroes and heroines will be invoked. There will be the sound of steel, percussion , voices chanting in ancient tongues, people” winig up “, some at beaches and prayer camps. In the midst of all this let us spare a thought and moment of our time to the spirit of Carnival in the islands of Trinbago.. ” Emancipated” Africans joined the European dominated Carnival and added their elements of sanctity , protest and hope of transformation of a society into the ” bacchanal “. A revolutionary step.
Let’s pay homage to a revolutionary.
