Click to Enlarge


The tableau present in the body of the 2017 Guyana Cultural Association of New York Award recipients shows foundational, connecting human activity. The indigenous characteristics are multiple centuries old, and in modern-day light, dispel the colonial lies with their truthful substance. Guyanese have a magnificent cultural grounding. It is evident in the initiatives and accomplishments of the Awardees who demonstrate creativity and distinctiveness.

Considerations to be fulfilled—Before we rebuild  (the prison)

By Yvonne Sam

Before any thought is given to the rebuilding (whether we should, or would it be wood) relocating (still Durban or urban), construction (destruction), or refurbishing (new face to old place) of the Camp Street Prison we should instead reconsider and redirect our attention to urgent reexamination of the entire penal system. Such a move calls for a bottom-up remodeling of the prison program, sentencing structure and definite retraining of prison personnel.
