Leaving their mark on the World and helping us to understand our history, our culture and ourselves. This week Backyard Labrish will be sharing enlightening information about several remarkable Jamaicans who made history as far back as 1707. We will share and explore amazing stories documented for us by Dr. Joy Lumsden, an English born Professor, now retired, who has made Jamaica her home and has dedicated her time to researching and documenting these historical treasures of Jamaica’s culture. Their stories of sacrifice, commitment and achievement are a testament to the human spirit, ingenuity, intellect and character, further confirming that Jamaica and Jamaicans have been in the limelight centuries before the proliferation of today’s media to spotlight these accomplishments in our Jamaican culture as they were happening. Join us as we learn lessons from the past that may help us to make a better tomorrow.
