Comments about Caribbean African Legend

The African (Pan African) creative mind was created by God Himself. It has lived for centuries and will continue to live for centuries to come. Marcus Carvey is no longer with us. Nor is Bob Collymore. What created will, however, never be forgotten. This poems captures that spirit so vividly.
.....fare thee well Bob. A great mind rested!

in all that lives.
