GRENADA: COLONIALISM AND CONFLICT - CARIBBEAN HISTORY PROGRAM
Black Spectrum Theatre
Jamaica, NY
Share this event:


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7 @ 8PM - CARIBBEAN HISTORY PROGRAM


CATCH A FIRE
Catch a Fire tells the story of Deacon Paul Bogle, often described as a 19th century Malcom X. 30 years after the end of slavery in Jamaica, the Morant Bay Rebellion of 1865 provoked outrage in Victorian Britain shaping race and land attitudes. The story is constructed using extensive interviews with Paul Bogle's grand son as well as archive material.
Menelik Shabazz, UK/Jamaica/ 1995, 30min, docu-drama

Shown with GRENADA: COLONIALISM AND CONFLICT

A chronicle of the philosophical and sometimes bloody struggles Grenadians have waged against colonialism and its long-lasting psychological influences. Grenadian leaders fought against colonialism in different ways. Julian Fedon freed 100 slaves to fight the British. Eric Gairy led the poor people in a massive strike and obtained many improvements for them. Maurice Bishop led a successful coup against Eric Gairy in 1979, promising education and societal reform. History tells the tale, however, that even as Grenadian leaders have struck blows at colonialism, they have at times employed the tools of oppression taught to them by their colonial masters. Valerie Scoon, Grenada/USA, 2012, 45min, documentary in English
