Africans owned land and slaves in Trinidad*

Trinidad Express / I wish to take issue with the attacks by Shabaka Kambon and Dr Claudius Fergus on a fellow member of the Indian-Trinidadian intelligentsia who is also the editor of the free online Indo-Caribbean Diaspora Newsletter www.icdn.today.

In the Express of January 19, Dool Hanomansingh was accused by these two black power activists of being “most reckless with facts” and engaging in a “laughable”, “anti-African falsification” of “great magnitude” because Hanomansingh stated blacks in Trinidad enslaved some of the First Peoples.

Fergus also wrote in a blog that it was a “unique example set by Africans who, before Emancipation, were the only farmers who worked the land without slave labour.” (wired868.com).
