Jamaica and Jamaicans have been breaking barriers, making headlines, taking a stand and making a difference for generations and continues to do so today.

BackYardlabrish is thrilled to bring to life stories of trailblazers of the past and recognize and honor our trailblazers of the present who are making their mark across the globe.

This week's story looks back at 'George Stiebel', Jamaica's first black millionaire. Born in 1820, Mr. George left a legacy, Devon House, that remains one of Jamaica's leading monuments.

Our other featured trailblazer is Jamaican-born UK-based millionaire entrepreneur; Wilfred Emanuel-Jones.  Born in Clarendon, in 1957, Mr. Emanuel-Jones founded “The Black Farmer” food products brand in Devon, England.

Join us 8:00PM Wed: 10/19/11 as the 'Labrish' explores interesting details of these two outstanding Jamaicans.
