There is a noticeable absence of significant persons from the Caribbean who are celebrated online. Grenada – Forward Ever is working to amend this poor situation. To do this we are curating the names of individuals who have contributed to the development of Grenada and the Caribbean.
Phyllis Coard – “A Comrade Sister”:
Following her death in September 2020, writers from across the globe have paid tribute to “Comrade Sister” Phyllis Coard. Ranging from friends, supporters, family members, academicians and others, the plethora of articles have shone many lights on the achievements of this amazing woman, who served humanity in the United Kingdom, Jamaica, Grenada and elsewhere. British readers were provided with a fulsome testimonial by Jacqui McKenzie on the 3 October 2020 in the Morning Star newspaper.
Noteworthy Caribbean women are not overlooked when history is written, they are ignored. Whether inscribed by Caribbean men or others, the narrative is often about male leaders and intellectuals of the region. With this in mind we explore the achievements of another Great Caribbean Leader, Claudia Jones.
