Our resistance to white oppression began on the African continent and continued wheresoever we were transported to.
Prior to the Great Disaster our peoples ruled ourselves majestically.
We encountered the European/Caucasoid man and there was a stumbling on the Path. We became enslaved and were even considered property to be bought and sold at Markets.
We did nit lose our dignity.The enslaved engaged in psychological and spiritual warfare as we attempted to regain our honourable position on the planet. We demonstrated perseverance and optimum optimism. We did not give up or give in. Our resistance to the oppression has redefined the relationships that we now define as rights on this planet. We demanded and commanded the right to equality. We demanded Justice.We continue to shape and reshape modern paradigms of social/human interaction.We shall not stop our struggle until all are treated with respect and dignity.Our struggle for ourselves has been a struggle for all.
Among our shapers and contributors to the new paradigms of social equality and Justice have been Caribbean Man,who came on the same ship. Our demographic mix on the plantation allowed us to maintain the status of a majority sector in the social scheme of things. Our young men remained nold, and daring.Some of us through forced circumstances migrated.The memories of our island autonomy remained with us. We held our heads high. We did not bow.

May your strength inspire us to endure to the end
