St Vincent and the Grenadines: Living the Garifuna Heritage and Culture after 215 Years

As I write, there is a Garifuna conference, exhibition, film series, and marketplace taking place in Kingstown, St Vincent and the Grenadines, from March 10-14, 2012. The event is titled: “Living the Garifuna Heritage and Culture after 215 Years–Strengthening Links, Forging Networks, Claiming Ancestral Space.” It is organized by the Garifuna Heritage Foundation based in St Vincent (the President is David Darkie Williams).

[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this item to our attention.]
