AfriGeneas Caribbean Research Forum

Re: [Other] The Harder They Write: Does 'Caribbean

Dear "ms B" or Plumrose:

I never respond to messages that contain poor sentence structure , misspelled words and... most importantly, comments that lack the professional spirit of AfriGeneas.

However since your unconscionable message was directed to Dera, one of AfriGeneas' important contributors to The Writers and Book Forums (and an author in her own right), my response is this:

Your remarks are crass and limited. They also resonate with the taint of “foreign distain” for African American cultural and literary appreciation.

The links below will clarify AfriGeneas and its appreciation of Caribbean writers. In addition to the links below, you’ll find Dera's postings on Caribbean writers throughout the pages of AfriGeneas.

The links below will take you to selected articles about Nobel Laureate, Derek Walcott that include his Nobel Banquet speech.

Lastly, a search of the The AfriGeneas Caribbean Forum, will reveal a website dedicated to the late Eric Eustace Williams, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. Dr. Williams' speeches and published essays are included on the website.

Peace.
