When one's history is written by another nation, another culture, a colonizer, then one's history becomes their history. So, when you are able to record the happenings from your own point of view, those significant dates and persons should be recorded. 'This Month in History' is therefore a beginning of sharing significant dates and events in African Jamaican Emancipatory history, taken from my book, George Lisle: A Faith That Couldn't Be Denied, Jamaica 1783 - 1865. If upon reading the monthly calendars you are curious about the context and the people they briefly highlights, then please feel free to delve into the book.
