  3. Cultural expression is a form of resistance. Amilcar Cabral, Cape Verdean revolutionary assassinated in 1973, had this to say about culture while delivering the Eduardo Mondlane Memorial Lecture at Syracuse University in February 1970 .

  4. An interview given to rootsandculture(c) by historian, Wazir Mohamed, Phd. that hopefully lays the foundation for the serious discussion and work needed on resolving ethnic insecurity in Guyana and elsewhere. Ethnic Africans, Indians, Amerindians, Chinese and Europeans, and all the mixtures must understand the history before plotting a way forward.
