Slaves and Sex. Speaking in his chapter ‘Local Hospitality’ John Stedman whilst on expedition to Suriname to quell the uprising slave rebellions, writes that sex with enslaved women is ‘an office commonly performed by slaves in Suriname to all ranks and sexes without exception.’ After sleeping with a house maid he describes that ‘her behaviour was only such as would have been practised by the generality of the female negro slaves, and will be found, by all who visit the West India settlements, to characteristic of the whole dark sisterhood.’ He also continued to say the women ‘exult in the circumstance of living with a European, and they serve with the utmost of tenderness and fidelity.’ Continuing to say women ‘refuse the contempt of golden bribes of some, while on others they bestow their favours for a dram or a broken tobacco-pipe, if not for nothing.’ #knowyourcaribbean #caribbeanhistory #suriname #slavery #massa #johnstedman #dutchguiana #johngabrielstedman

An African in Imperial London: The Indomitable Life of A. B. C. Merriman-Labor
By Danell Jones @danell.jones 
In a world dominated by the British Empire, and at a time when many Europeans considered black people inferior, Sierra Leonean writer A. B. C. Merriman-Labor claimed his right to describe the world as he found it. He looked at the Empire's great capital and laughed. In this first biography of Merriman-Labor, Danell Jones describes the tragic spiral that pulled him down the social ladder from writer and barrister to munitions worker, from witty observer of the social order to patient in a state-run hospital for the poor. In restoring this extraordinary man to the pantheon of African observers of colonialism, she opens a window onto racial attitudes in Edwardian London. An African in Imperial London is a rich portrait of a great metropolis, writhing its way into a new century of appalling social inequity, world-transforming inventions, and unprecedented demands for civil rights.

🌬Winter weather getting to you? How about a little trip to the warm, sunny Caribbean.. more specifically, the lost Jewish colony of the Caribbean?🌞 “But P&P, that’s not a thing,” I hear you protesting. Okay, maybe it’s a little bit of an exaggeration—there is no Jewish Roanoke in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle—but the island of Curacao, north of Venezuela, does have an unexpectedly epic Jewish history (fun fact: at one time it was known by the Dutch name of Jodenwijk, Jew Borough). In the seventeenth century, the island became a Mecca for Sephardic Jewish refugees, especially those fleeing Recife, Brazil, after it was captured from the Dutch by the Portuguese. They quickly came to dominate the island’s international trade, but as the island’s economy declined in the nineteenth century so did its Jewish population ⚓️ Today there are only a few hundred Jews left in Curaçao, but their historic synagogue Mikve Israel-Emanuel remains, and it is home to some fascinating customs, from sand-covered floors to a special black tallit for the fast day of Tisha Be’Av to a cool variation on the Jewish wedding tradition of #smashingtheglass.

Follow the link in my bio for more of the scoop, plus a fascinating recipe fusing Old World and New World ingredients and culinary traditions: tutu, a black-eyed pea and cornmeal mash 🌴

Becoming by Michelle Obama

Released TODAY!!! An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States in a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African-American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments.

Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

Warm, wise, and revealing, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same

The Caribbean has so much more to offer than sea and sand. History of these islands is also the history of the Americas and the colonizers from Europe. One example of this rich history is the Roman catholic cathedral in Puerto Rico - the second oldest in the Americas

Did you know that New Beacon Books are an official stockist of Nana Dolls. The beautifully created dolls by artist @fuseodg @hellonanadolls 
The story behind the dolls “On a recent trip to Ghana we visited Cape coast Elmina castle. The stories we heard about slavery and the brave women who fought for black freedom really touched us. We felt it is very important for us to remember and also educate our children and future generations about these powerful  women in history. It was this trip that inspired us to create Nana dolls. 
Nana means Queen or King in West Africa , Ghana. We wanted to teach the younger generation  this important history whilst also having fun. There were many strong courageous women from all over Africa who helped to fight for freedom. Amongst those are four who have inspired Nana dolls. Yaa Asantewaa from Ghana, Mbuya Nehanda from Zimbabwe, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti from Nigeria and Miriam Makeba from South Africa. Each doll’s character is inspired by one of these historical Queens. 
We hope you will enjoy playing with these Queens with your children, and join us on this fun trip as we all learn about their strong characters and ultimate bravery.” Dolls available on our website and in store - perfect for the princess at Christmas

Edward Wilmot Blyden, is known as the father of Pan-Africanism, was born on August 3, 1832 in Saint Thomas, in what are now the U.S Virgin Islands. Blyden was born to Romeo and Judith Blyden, a tailor and schoolteacher, respectively.  The family lived in a predominantly Jewish and English speaking community, and attended church at the integrated Dutch Reformed Church. 
Blyden became a student of Rev. John P. Knox, the pastor at the Dutch Reformed Church. Rev. Knox, impressed with Blyden’s scholarly potential, his mentor and through him Blyden decided to become a clergyman. In May 1850, Blyden accompanied Mrs. Knox, the clergyman’s wife, to the U.S to enroll into Rutgers’ Theological College in New Jersey but was refused admission because of his race. 
Blyden turned his attention to the West African nation of Liberia  and accepted an offer in 1850 to teach in Liberia.  He was employed at Alexander High School in Monrovia.  There he began self-directed studies of theology, the classics, geography and mathematics.  In 1858 Blyden was ordained a Presbyterian Minister and appointed Principal of Alexander High School. He was also appointed editor of the Liberian Herald, then the only newspaper in the nation, by Liberian President Joseph Roberts. 
Drawing on both scriptures and science, Blyden challenged the arguments about black inferiority that were increasingly popular in Europe and North America during this period.  He argued black equality and used examples of little known but successful persons of African ancestry.  Between 1856 and 1887 Blyden authored four books, A Voice From Bleeding Africa (1856); A Vindication of the African Race; Being

♻Regran_ed♻ @newbeaconbooks -  The black poppy rose was created to represent the African/Black/West Indian/Pacific Island communities' role in the war. The project began in 2010.
The BlackPoppyRose campaign says it is a symbol for us to remember not only the soldiers, but also the peoples, of Africans/Black/West Indian/Pacific Island communities who contributed in any way for the War effort.

Black Poppies 
By Stephen Bourne 
In 1914, there were at least 10,000 black Britons, many of African and West Indian heritage, fiercely loyal to their Mother Country. Despite being discouraged from serving in the British Army during World War I, men managed to join all branches of the armed forces, and black communities made a vital contribution, both on the front and at home. By 1918, it is estimated that the black population had trebled to 30,000, and after the war many black soldiers who had fought for Britain decided to make it their home. Black Poppies explores the military and civilian wartime experiences of these men and of women, from the trenches to the music hall. Poignantly, it concludes by examining the anti-black race riots of 1919 in cities like Cardiff and Liverpool, where black men came under attack from returning white soldiers who resented their presence, in spite of what they and their families had done for Britain during the war. The first book of its kind to focus on the Black British experience during World War I.

This is my great grandfather Arnold Savoury, my grandfather's father. My grandfather can't tell me much about him because he died in 1942 (grandaddy was 3 years old at the time) , when his ship was torpedoed off  Bermuda, he believes (the island could be wrong). We don't have all the details but a cousin found Arnold's name on a monument erected some where in London in memoriam of him and his fellow sailors lost on that ship. 
I'm grateful for him. I'm sorry for my grandfather and his siblings loss, and the resulting hardship that occurred as a result of Arnold Savoury's death. I honor my great-grandpa 💖

We don't have all the details but a cousin found Arnold's name on a monument erected some where in London in memoriam of him and his fellow sailors lost on that ship. I'm grateful for him. I'm sorry for my grandfather and his siblings loss, and the resulting hardship that occurred as a result of Arnold Savoury's death. I honor my great-grandpa 💖 #happyveteransday  #familytree  #tracingmyfamily  #ancestors  #protectors  #blacksoldiers  #blacksailors  #caribbeanhistory  #bajanhistory  #caribbeanstories  #vintageblackglamour  #repercussionsofimperialism  #becauseofthem  #lanomrah

A century ago today, at precisely this hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice between the Allies and Germany took effect, ending what was at the time the worst war the world had ever seen. It was a war so devastating that people at the time commonly referred to it as the “war to end all wars.” Over its four-year span more than 16 million people lost their lives, both military and civilian. But as destructive as that conflict was, we of course know that it wasn’t to be the last. Just over a decade later, fuelled by the resentment over the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and its leader, Adolf Hitler, would rise to power in Germany, seeking to avenge its defeat and setting the stage for another bloody conflict. Now we all know about the heroic contribution British soldiers made in both these conflicts, and specifically the 700,000 men who never returned from the battlefields of the First World War. We remember them every year at sacred places like the tomb of the unknown warrior in Westminster Abbey and at the cenotaph in Whitehall. But until quite recently, there was no memorial in Britain dedicated to the memory of the over 2 million Commonwealth soldiers from Africa and the Caribbean who also served alongside British troops and Her Allies in both those conflicts. Heroes like Walter Tull, who left their families and their home, to fight on behalf of a ‘Mother Country’ they barely even knew, propelled by their selfless willingness to find meaning in something greater than themselves. Their contribution to this country must also never be forgotten and with this permanent memorial in Brixton’s Windrush Square, I hope it never will be.

Along with the beautiful white sand beaches and picturesque views at Pigeon Island National Landmark in Saint Lucia are numerous military ruins which help to tell the story of the struggle for control of the Caribbean between the British, French and other European powers.

Amerindians were the first inhabitants of Pigeon Island in Saint Lucia.  Then during the middle of the sixteen century, pirates used Pigeon Island as a hideout!  Their leader was a Frenchman called Francois Leclerc aka Jamie de Bois because of his wooden leg.

Then in 1667, the Peace of Brede recognized French sovereignty in Saint Lucia which was now settled by French planters.  After this, Saint Lucia changed hands fourteen times between the French and British.  The French were in control of the island seven times, and the British were also in control of the island seven times.  Saint Lucia finally gained its independence from the British in 1979. 
So as I walked alone through the military ruins including the soldier’s barracks pictured here, it provided the opportunity to reflect and think about the French and British men far from home, fighting for control and dominance of Saint Lucia and the wider Caribbean region.  Also, hitting home that while Saint Lucian culture is heavily influenced by the British, it is also heavily influenced by the French.  Its why so many people on the island - in particular, the older generation speak not just English but Creole. 🇱🇨 .

@Regran_ed from @problackvirginia -  newbeaconbooks -  The black poppy rose was created to represent the African/Black/West Indian/Pacific Island communities' role in the war. The project began in 2010.
The BlackPoppyRose campaign says it is a symbol for us to remember not only the soldiers, but also the peoples, of Africans/Black/West Indian/Pacific Island communities who contributed in any way for the War effort.

Black Poppies 
By Stephen Bourne 
In 1914, there were at least 10,000 black Britons, many of African and West Indian heritage, fiercely loyal to their Mother Country. Despite being discouraged from serving in the British Army during World War I, men managed to join all branches of the armed forces, and black communities made a vital contribution, both on the front and at home. By 1918, it is estimated that the black population had trebled to 30,000, and after the war many black soldiers who had fought for Britain decided to make it their home. Black Poppies explores the military and civilian wartime experiences of these men and of women, from the trenches to the music hall. Poignantly, it concludes by examining the anti-black race riots of 1919 in cities like Cardiff and Liverpool, where black men came under attack from returning white soldiers who resented their presence, in spite of what they and their families had done for Britain during the war. The first book of its kind to focus on the Black British experience during World War I.

Excerpt from Philip Walwyn's book -More Rain More Rest: ⁣
"Estridge was a wooden house built about 150 years ago, set on the stone⁣
foundations of a somewhat larger house from the 18th century. The house lacked paint; the doors, the windows, the shutters all were rickety. The garden unkempt. A small stone building stood at the rear and it still does.  It felt a little eerie to be in this semi-derelict house where all others were afraid to live. One night, half in half out of my dreams, I heard the clanking of chains; my mind raced and daylight revealed a large land crab scrambling against the wooden walls.  One had to be on constant watch for cane fires, ready to call out the ⁣
gang and the fire cart. Many hours I spent in the rambling house and that was another time the great novel should have been written and was not. " This painting "Estridge" is one of 50 in the book by the artist Kate Spencer Walwyn.

What is the price of your loved one? After the Parsley Massacre (see previous post) of Black Haitians on the boarder of Dominican Republic U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt and Haitian president Sténio Vincent sought reparations of $750,000, of which the Dominican government paid $525,000 (US$ 8,937,152.78 in 2017 dollars). Of this 30 dollars per victim, survivors received only 2 cents each, due to corruption in the Haitian bureaucracy.

Striking a definite pose! Developed in the 1970s and in the 1980s, power dressing is a fashion style that enables women to establish their authority in a professional environment. The power suit was a key trend for women the 1980s. “We saw emphasis on broad, padded shoulders…focusing on straight skirts, hip-length jackets with shoulder pads, small collars and lapels.” Lorna Holder

Excerpt from the Book…. Cavelle was a great example of the better educated, brighter, more ambitious person who somehow saw wider horizons open up before them and managed to drag themselves up by their bootstraps. This was not easy at a time when poverty in the rural villages was still endemic.  There were barely any opportunities in those villages far out⁣
in the country forty, fifty years ago whilst, concurrently, a greater realisation had dawned for a larger number of people that the possibility of a lifetime better spent than working in the cane fields was out there somewhere. Somewhere such as England at that time; earlier it might have been Ontario for apple picking or, between the wars, ⁣
Curacao in the oil fields, or always the Virgin Islands.⁣ Cavelle came to cook and was directed by my hard-working mother in our newly opened inn. She was of that tall, slim breed and had a wonderful way of standing on one leg with the foot of the other placed upon the lower calf of the standing leg. Her silhouette was made sharper if she felt a little embarrassed in front of the guests when announcing that dinner would be served in five minutes or that dinner was ready. The ⁣
stance when at its most extreme was like that of the Maasai warrior, although she had no spear. “Soup is on the table.” In a sing-song voice. Stork-like poise and attendant pirouette most graceful as she turned to go back to the kitchen with a large smile.

☄️ Before going to the Ubersoca cruise J’ourvert, we did the walking tour with this passionate tour guide Lammy who told us a bit about the history and reality of Haiti. We’ve been to Haiti before and learnt about its history, sacrifice and the negative portrayal. But it is always good to learn more. Couldn’t come to Haiti and not find out more... Without Haiti 🇭🇹, the  west would have a very different geographical and economical landscape. The Uber Soca Cruise was 24/7 feting but it also gave the opportunity to learn more about foundations, pivotal foundations. @ubersocacruise 🙏🏿 #ubersocacruise2018#cruise#travel#travelpassport#digitalnomad#Haiti#historyof#foundations#caribbeanhistory#culture#rebellion#independence#doyouknow#knowledge#journalism#notjustaboutthefete#ilovecarnivall

For an editorial about the British West Indies Regimen and their involvement in the the First World War. They were however, treated more like labourers rather than soldiers which led to another battle...one for respect and equality.

@newbeaconbooks with Mixed-Race Superman
By Will Harris 
Mixed-Race Superman asks what it means to be mixed race in an increasingly divided world.
In an era where a man endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan can sit in the White House, Will Harris considers how two very different supermen—Barack Obama and Keanu Reeves—each transformed the confusion of a mixed heritage into a heroic identity.
Drawing on personal experience to examine the way that these two men have been embedded in our collective consciousness, Mixed-Race Superman is a moving exploration of race, identity and masculinity that establishes Harris as a truly remarkable writer: wise, generous and razor-sharp.

One of 50 paintings from More Rain More Rest titled “Sugar 6”

artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
That late afternoon light around 5:30 as it hit the golden cut cane was magic. I used to sketch a lot in those days as there was so much to paint. The fields around the house were alive with activity, donkeys, tractors and carts. I think the donkeys name is Timothy and the woman looks like Ermine who would be walking back down to the village after the lunch shift at Rawlins Plantation Inn.
This is a small oil sketch looking over to St Eustatius, otherwise known as Statia, a Dutch island with a long strange history. The cane was so tall, you could not see over the top, so when a field was cut suddenly a spectacular vista lay open.  The mill and chimney below is Belmont Estate, now sadly a ruin. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “St. Pauls Butterfly”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
I kept loose paper in my hymn book for sketching. St. Paul's church at Easter time was full of very smart women and they kept their children 'in check' and beautifully dressed. This little girl was mesmerized by the yellow butterflies and every now and again outstretched her arm to try and catch one. I remember my mother had died the month before and the numbers on the Hymn Board were my mother's favorite hymns...'All Things Bright and Beautiful', 'There is a Green Hill far far away, without a city wall'. It was a difficult composition and needed to be distorted quite a lot.  I should have done many more church paintings.  I got half way through one of two girls singing and tapping tambourines at the same time. It was a wonderful sight... #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Sugar Factory”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
Oh the noise was colossal, every piece of machinery cranking away and the staircases rickety and old.  The wonderful fresh sweet smell of cane filled your nostrils as did the dust, the heat, the debris of cane mulch. It was difficult finding a patch to sketch.  I went back day after day, much to the annoyance of the man at the entrance, he said it was far too dangerous for me!  But I loved the old splendid wheels and machinery and the best bit was when the oven door opened and the man arrived wearing big gloved hands and carrying a long devil like fork to stoke up the fire and load it up. Wonderful. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Cranstons”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
It was one of the few estates close to the sea and as you approached you saw the silhouette of the sugar mill and chimney. The land was flat and very fertile and it was close to Brimstone Hill.  We often used to go for a swim off the black sandy beach and then drive back up this driveway, over the road and up more cane tracks back to Mounty P. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

The Tempest 2017 by Kate Spencer - This painting is the back cover of More Rain More Rest.  Kate's story about the painting:During the hurricane I stayed with friends in Frigate Bay on the other side of St. Kitts.  I wondered whether my beloved Mounty P had survived the storm.  We thought things must be worse on the Northern end.  So the next day I drove as close as I could and walked the rest of the way.  When I came over the hill and saw the house still standing I was overcome with joy and shouted.  When I got close I found bird nests knocked down in the storm, their house ruined but my house intact. I put them in the painting.  We were very lucky.  Lots of others were 
not.  #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Fahies”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:
This was one of my first landscapes I ever painted in St. Kitts. Fahies was an old sugar estate just below Kittitian Hill but part of the flat lands were used for 'Provision grounds' and grew everything. Yams, Pinder, sweet potato, Dasheen, pumpkin, pineapple. That is Mount Misery or Mount Liamuiga in the background and what a fine range of mountain it is too. Every estate had a water source piped down from the mountain. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

Painting from the book “Hermitage”
artist Kate Spencer’s story about the painting:  I stayed the weekend in this most charming hotel.  It has the same sweet proportions as Mounty P, so simple, so intimate, with that timeless softness of light and feeling of romance.  It was mango time and the Julie mangoes were delicious. The owner Richard loved Opera and somehow it all fitted in, like a stage set in the tropics. #caribbean #stkitts #nevis #caribbeanart #westindies #caribbeanhistory #lewardislands #oldtimecaribbean #sugarplantation #caribbeanfarming #englishcolonial #caribbeanmemoir #caribbeanstory #socialhistory #sugarcane #sugarcity #sugarproduction #caribbeanbiography

From start to finish.  Vincent Van Gogh. @lapiscalpo brought the image from the canvas to stone.  Brought life and dimensions out. 
When Van Gogh comes back in the Resurrection he should teach lapiscalpo how to paint on canvas and they will teach him how to scratch his paintings on to stones.

My history teacher said that once an enemy ship was spotted, canons were sounded off to alert each fort 🗣💣💥 He also said that the gun men were so skilled they could’ve taken out that barge with ease. That barge over Fish Bay mehson! 🧐😱

While built true to form and function; these types of early Caribbean homes delivered no thermal protection; instead they were simple shelters and a gathering place for conversations and social networking.

We had the privilege of learning from Dr. Jay B. Haviser about his discovery of the “Zoutsteeg Three” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Among the earliest recorded Africans on the island, circa 1680-1700, were those brought by the Dutch West India Company, to extract salt from the Great Salt Pond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Two males and a female, were found buried together at the salt pond side of Philipsburg during road construction on the Zoutsteeg (Salt street) in 2012. 
These three individuals showed an extremely unique physical trait, that trait being the intentional modification of all their front incisor teeth, chipped and ground into pointed 'fangs'. This body modification was relatively common as an aesthetic expression in West Africa, and required great pain endurance to possess.
