    Monday Jun 27 | Caribbean News Now!

    By Ray Chickrie and Shabnam Alli Very little is written about the prominent role that enslaved African Muslims played in the history of the Guianas but, for now, we will focus on Guyana, the former Dutch/British colony in South America. Born in Guyana, Raymond Chickrie was a teacher in the New York City public school system and has also taught in the Middle East While the reconstruction of the history of enslaved Africans in Guyana is difficult due to the horrors of slavery, and the fact that almost 99% of the archival materials are in Dutch, it may cause some unease for the predominantly forced converted descendants of Africans in Guyana today.

This is the political will which is so lacking in this country, and that is the reason why this country will never see the kind of socio-economic progress which there should be, given the huge amounts of resources which are being expended on a daily basis.
