A Reaction to the Story on the African Diaspora

Dear Source:
I found the piece awesome. We know that the truth lies beyond the next horizon. So it is a moment to celebrate, contemplate the significance of such finds. We have a proud and recoverable history, a positive legacy indeed. Let the truth so shine before all manner of Man. And that from so small a place, like the Virgin Islands, history can bestow upon all. Keep up the good work. Hail up from a native son, Derry Jackson, son of another native son Franklin Jackson [son of another native son Anton Jackson and native daughter Eleanor Calwood] and native daughter of Anguilla Iona Hodge [daughter of native son of Aruba Charles Harvey Hodge and Anguilla Breatice Fleming]. May God bless our cause to the realization of peace for the Africans and Africans in Diaspora. –
Derry Jackson Sr.
St. Croix
