Dr. Vibert Cambridge

Our two esteemed presenters, Dr. Michelle Yaa Assantawa, and Rosamond Grant (see flyer for more details), will be joined by Dr. Vibert Cambridge, a recipient of Guyana’s Golden Arrow of Achievement.   He will be speaking via Skype on the contribution of J. A. Barbour-James, a Guianese postal official who worked in the Gold Coast (present-day Ghana) during the first decade of the 20th century.  [See Flyer below] 

Guyanese culture reflects the influence of Amerindian, African, Indian, and European (primarily Dutch, British and Portuguese) cultures.  This Sunday’s programme will focus on the contribution of West African culture to Guyana as well the experiences of Guyanese who travelled to, and lived in, West Africa.
