The Importance of Caribbean Art Stories
To learn from our mistakes and look for a better future as a species, what happened in our region is real history that could repeat to us as a species, what happened in our islands was a human mistake and we must learn from it and move on and if we tell our story right we could change the way humans see themselves, as individuals entities of their own world and not realizing that we could create anything we want. I want to present people like me who to think beyond the limits that have been imposed to me by being gay, black, poor and from a poor black country.
