Liberia Map

Under the umbrella of the SANKOFA PILGRIMAGE TO BARBADOS, the trip is being organised by Ambassador Llewellyn Witherspoon in collaboration with the Barbados government, 159 years after the forebears departed Barbados for Liberia.

BOOK: Aftermath of Empire: The Novels of Roy Heath

Aftermath of Empire: The Novels of Roy A.K. Heath Paperback – October 31, 2017

Roy A.K. Heath (1926–2008) was born in British Guiana (now Guyana). He fled a stultifying colony in 1950 and headed to the United Kingdom where he became a teacher by profession, a lawyer by training, and a writer by conscience. Heath authored nine novels (the first published in 1974), all uncompromisingly grounded in the landscape and the sociopolitical and cultural reality of twentieth-century Guyana.

Short Story: THE LOTTERY TICKETS – By Royden V. Chan. 1995

According to the Buddha, man himself is the maker of his own destiny. He has none to blame for his lot since he alone is responsible for his own life. He makes his own life for better or for worse.
When you read this tale of Aubrey and Elsie Robinson, you can decide if this is true or if we are powerless pawns manipulated by conditions and circumstances beyond our control.
