Program Description
Second program of two focusing on the political, cultural, educational, religious, and economic aspects of the Caribbean Islands. Hosts Barbara Barrow and Dighton Spooner speak with Dr. Tony Martin (author of Race First, from Greenwood Press), Joseph Peltier (member of a movement for a new Dominica), Franz Minuty (a lecturer on Haitian culture), and Kenneth A. Loftman (a former educator in the West Indies and businessman in Boston), about voodoo religion and what part it plays in Caribbean culture, voodoo as a way for Caribbean communities to use their own culture for spiritual development rather than the religion of white colonizing forces, Black awareness and Marcus Garvey (Martin's book Race First is about Garvey), the ideological conflicts between W.E.B. DuBois (of the NAACP) and Garvey, and Garvey's impact in the Caribbean. Program includes the "Community Calendar."
