“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
Our aim in this page is to introduce the many facets of our Panamanian Westindian Culture. We are hoping to open discussion on the role Westindian Culture, as a whole, is to play in the Study of Blacks in the Americas. The proponents of Black Studies in the United States are to be commended for opening the vehicle of Black Studies first in he Universities, but for the rest of us living in the countries and islands that make up the Americas, such studies, by and about Blacks in our culture, are still in the realm of dreams that intellectuals dabble in to be “exotic.”
We would like to invite all of our readers to peruse the sections we have listed below. Your comments are valued and always welcome.
