Independence, Colonial Relics, and Monuments in the Caribbean

Allison O. Ramsay University of the West Indies St. Augustine, "Independence, Colonial Relics, and Monuments in the Caribbean"
English | ISBN: 1666943975 | 2024 | 226 pages | PDF | 9 MB

Independence, Colonial Relics, and Monuments in the Caribbean is a collection of critical perspectives on independence and the legacies of colonialism in the post-colonial Caribbean. The contributors examine themes relating to culture, identity, gender, nationhood, heritage and historic preservation in the post-independent Caribbean. In a twenty-first century context where calls for reparatory justice for the people of the Caribbean who have been disadvantaged by the effects of colonialism have intensified, this book is quite relevant as some chapters examine colonialism through relics, laws, statues and monuments, while other chapters explore the implications of African enslavement, the role of Indian indentureship, the Federation of the West Indies and the effect of the American based Black Lives Movement on the Caribbean.
