From Jamaica to America, Karl’s Contribution to the American Landscape….

I wish to thank Mayor Wayne J. Hall, the Board of Trustees, and Jenise C. Richardson – Assistant to the Mayor and Director of Publicity – for selecting me as one of the Honorees in their Annual Caribbean American History Month program. The 2016 event’s theme is “contribution to the American landscape.” The event was held in the Incorporated Village of Hempstead, Long Island, on June 20, 2016.

In the interim, you may refer to the pictures below…. Videos and additional pictures of the event will be posted in the near future.

Karl On Panel Discussion Moderated By Dr. Fiona Vernal (UConn Department of History) II

My time in Hartford, Connecticut, on Sunday, was time well spent.

The Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess film was very informative as it pertains to the legendary Queen, the Maroons and the Jamaican indomitable spirit.

The panel discussion was made very interesting with great questions and comments coming from an active and a vocal audience (including a Yale University alumni – A.B. and a Yale University administrator). By the way, my fellow participant – an author and a professor – on the panel discussion informed me that she was once my high school teacher. It is indeed a small world.

I wish to thank the event’s organizers, my family and friends and audience members for a very good event.
