Slavery has had a lasting impact on the Caribbean and CARICOM is addressing this issue through its Ten-Point Plan for Reparation.
On Friday November 8th, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. The Honourable Ralph Gonsalves, will be the feature speaker at a public lecture on the slavery reparation plan.
Attendees will learn about the implications of slavery on our cultural heritage, literacy and public health, access to technology and the legacy of debt. The event will be held at the Scarborough Library Facility from 5:00 p.m. and is hosted by the Tobago Writers Guild and the Tobago Literacy Support Group, with support from the THA.
