Guyana History: Lord Bishop William Piercy Austin (1807 – 1892) of British Guiana – By Dmitri Allicock

Bishop William Piercy Austin

— By Dmitri Allicock

Honoring our heritage must be as natural as breathing for it is indeed the foundation on which you stand. Many great individuals of early British Guiana have been lost to the fog of history but the legacy of Anglican Bishop Dr. William Piercy Austin lives on in Guyana. Bishop William Piercy Austin’s ideas and diligent contributions gave rise to the academic pursuits in Guyana for which he is recognized as one of the most outstanding individuals in the history of the Colony of    British Guiana.      Continue reading

In Guyana: The Primacy of Hope – By Dave Martins + Guyana Medley by The Tradewinds

By

In years past, hearing outside about my country’s difficulties, I would come home to Guyana with Tradewinds to play music, or just to visit, often very concerned that I would find a joyless, dispirited people. It would be in my mind often as I was setting up the tours. I recall particularly the reactions to the endless lines in the “shortages” days, when even toilet paper was on ration. Instead, I would come home and find Guyanese, certainly complaining, but also upbeat, showing exuberance, finding things to laugh at.        Continue reading

OPINION: ‘Privilege’ and ‘The Decision’ – two articles by Geoff Burrowes

Privilege

        I recently wrote a story about the Demerara Rowing Club, which was generously published in Guyana Online. One of the comments was by someone who only got one thing from the story: “Only the rich and famous?” I was irritated by the comment and responded “that while I am exceedingly rich I was never famous.” and asked if the reader had ever been interested in rowing?”

        My daughter had enjoyed reading the story and despite being the only “born in Canada” member of our immediate family she is a true Burrowes ! She said ” You all lived a privileged life in Guyana – why are you getting upset about when someone points it out?”        Continue reading

INTERVIEW: David Lammy: ‘You can be critical of your country and still love it’ – The Guardian UK

Interview  – Sun 15 Nov 202 – The Guardian UK
Illustration: Lyndon Hayes/The Observer – David Lammy has Guyanese roots

The Labour MP talks about belonging, Brexit and Caribbean comfort food

“I make sure I know where all the new Caribbean restaurants and takeaways are,” says David Lammy, “because there are times I need a certain type of comfort food. Somewhere like this is almost umbilical for me. It’s the food my mum used to cook.”

We are in One Love Kitchen, in Finsbury Park, north London, which began life in a city street-food market and opened here just in time for lockdown. While Uber Eats riders come and go clutching bagged orders, and locals queue for something from the invitingly smoky grill, Her Majesty’s shadow minister for justice is deliberating between the jerk chicken and brown stew. Actually, “umbilical” is almost literally right, he suggests with a laugh as he opts for the former, because he was conceived a couple of streets away from here, where his parents had a bedsit.        Continue reading

VIDEO: Race in America – by Phil Vischer – Part 1 of 2

VIDEO: Race in America – by Phil Vischer

We need to talk about race. Why are people angry? Why so upset? Didn’t we elect a black president? Pass civil rights laws? Isn’t racism illegal now? Three years ago my brother Rob and I co-taught a class that discussed issues of racial injustice. That class turned into a popular podcast episode, which we’ve now turned into this video. Why are people still angry? Let’s take a look at race in America…
