Beschreibung:

Pan-Africanism in Barbados is a pioneering work. This is the first book exclusively on Pan-Africanism within Barbados, an island that is noted for its conservatism. The book traces the development of Pan-Africanism in Barbados during the 20th century, by looking at the major socio-political Pan-African formations in Barbados: the Universal Negro Improvement Association, the Workingmen's Association, Clement Payne and the loose Pan-African organization that played a leading role in workers struggle in 1937 before the disturbances in Barbados, the People's Progressive Movement/Black Star newspaper, Black Nights, the Southern African Liberation Committee, Rastafarians, the Marcus Garvey Hundredth Anniversary Committee, the Clement Payne Movement and the Pan-African Movement of Barbados. The work also examines the creation of the Commission for Pan-African Affairs, a government created institution to helped to promote the cause of Pan-Africanism. Worrell looks at the objectives, activities, rhetoric, weaknesses, important ideologues, what caused the demise of the various groupings and the lessons to be learnt.
