Love me, Barbados

Stories from a childhood lived when Barbados was getting ready for independence, by a master story teller who went through college and law school in New York and has led a purpose-filled life in the United States, Caribbean and African countries, working for human rights of refugees and immigrants.

From the first sentence, you are walking in Bridgetown with a curious, cheerful 14-year old boy who is doing his best to grow up happy, healthy, and playing cricket when Barbados is shaking off centuries of imperialism, subjugation and slavery.
