Barbados: Arts and Culture World Mourns the Late Edward Kamau Braithwaite

 By Sandy Deane | Barbados Today

Edward Kamau Braithwaite

The world of Caribbean arts and culture erupted in an outpouring of grief and tributes late Tuesday, 04 Feb 2020, with the death of iconic Barbadian man of letters and towering thinker, Edward Kamau Brathwaite. He would have turned 90 in May.

Brathwaite’s poetic trilogy The Arrivants – Rights of Passage, Masks and Islands, created between 1967 and 1969, was a landmark in the emergence of modern West Indies literature and established him as a unique voice from the postcolonial literature in English.

George Lamming remains the sole surviving Barbadian godfather of post-war Caribbean English literature with the passing of Braithwaite and last year’s passing of novelist Paule Marshall.        Continue reading

U.S. Senate acquits Trump in historic vote as re-election battle looms – Reuters

The businessman-turned-politician, 73, survived only the third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history – just like the two other impeached presidents – in his turbulent presidency’s darkest chapter. Trump now plunges into an election season that promises to further polarize the country.
.
Trump was acquitted largely along party lines on two articles of impeachment approved by the Democratic-led House of Representatives on Dec. 18, with the votes falling far short of the two-thirds majority required in the 100-seat Senate to remove him under the U.S. Constitution.          Continue reading
