    @ encourager… You calling this history. This is the continuation of a colonialization to the greatest level. Having the children learning that they are below the great white man from England. Send Help!

    In the wake of recent calls to pursue a more robust Virgin Islands history curriculum, these photos are very telling. I have to ask myself, what have we not done? In this day and age of 2012, have we not yet raised and taught and trained any historians, archeologists, and tour guides who could tell the story of Main Street with equal confidence and authority? Perhaps one of these days, one of these little ones will be the tour guide and archeologist in the picture, representing the voice, the perspective, the hope of our heritage. Perhaps I will live to see that in my lifetime…..perhaps….
