A Reaction to the Story on the African Diaspora


Dear Source:
I found the piece awesome. We know that the truth lies beyond the next horizon. So it is a moment to celebrate, contemplate the significance of such finds. We have a proud and recoverable history, a positive legacy indeed. Let the truth so shine before all manner of Man. And that from so small a place, like the Virgin Islands, history can bestow upon all. Keep up the good work. Hail up from a native son, Derry Jackson, son of another native son Franklin Jackson [son of another native son Anton Jackson and native daughter Eleanor Calwood] and native daughter of Anguilla Iona Hodge [daughter of native son of Aruba Charles Harvey Hodge and Anguilla Breatice Fleming]. May God bless our cause to the realization of peace for the Africans and Africans in Diaspora. –
Derry Jackson Sr.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
