Who was:Robert Lindsay? (1840-1904)

‘…men of the Robert Lindsay type, men whose service has sweetened and enriched life and made the world better.’Daily Gleaner, August 1936

In my on-going research into Jamaican history I am continually struck by how many important people in that history have been overlooked, forgotten, and perhaps discarded. Some are remembered for a while, but then disappear from memory, often that of the academic community……. I spend much of my time trying to restore
some of these lost Jamaicans to recollection; Robert Lindsay is an important member of this lost community
. (Dr. Joy Lumsden)

Backyardlabrish is excited to join Dr. Joy Lumsden in her effort to restore the lost community of Jamaicans of one hundred years ago, and ask you to visit with us this Thursday 5/3/12 at 8:00PM. We will be sharing information
discovered so far about this ‘teacher extraordinaire’ who is a testament to the accomplishments of the Jamaicans of the past of whom we can be proud.  We hope you or someone you know can help to expand their stories.

It will be another interesting Labrish 8:00PM Thurs. 5/3/12 in the Backyard where we Celebrate, Enlighten & Preserve the rich diverse culture ofJamaica: ’Land We Love’.
