Phyllis Coard – A Big Sista’ of the Grenada Revolution

Unchained: A Caribbean Woman’s Journey Through Invasion, Incarceration and Liberation tells the story of what happened to Phyllis Coard when, after four years of relentless destabilisation, the US invaded revolutionary Grenada in 1983.

The successes of the Revo’, particularly the fact that it happened in a small and impoverished country was too much for the US to bear. As the author of many of the gains made by and for Grenadian women, the invaders singled Coard out for special treatment. A summary of her book can be found at or Copies of the book can be obtained at
