Jamaican History by Wellesley Gayle || June 2017

I've shared a lot about Jamaica's history on this site, including a list showing the most significant dates in Jamaica's history.

But this one novel! This is special!

This is the first time I've actually interviewed someone on this subject - And the fact it is with a poor, simple 98 year old destitute Jamaican man made this even more special, more authentic and, to be quite honest with you, a bit emotional for me.

Despite been poor and old, the man is at peace and has an unmatched resolve and faith in God.

He clearly appreciated having me there, but I was humbled to be speaking with him, it was a true honour for me. I learned so much from in the few minutes I spent with him.

He shared reflections on, among other things:

  • His migration from Kingston (Whitehall Avenue) to St. Elizabeth.
  • Life on the plantation (including food, meal, punishment)
  • The 1938 sugar riot
  • The 1951 August flood
  • Hurricane Gilbert in 1988
  • Alexander Bustamante and Norman Manley
  • Housing at the time
  • Clothes and shoes
  • His wish for the future of Jamaica
  • etc.

Without hesitation, I now share my personal interaction with the 98 year old Jamaican man, Mr. Kenneth Brewster.

Here Is The Video (YouTube)

Turn up your speakers please :-)

The entire video interview is extremely enlightening, to say the least, but there are some key sections of the video that I hope you really don't miss, for example:

  • Jump to section 33:15  -  He has a message to Jamaica and the world
  • Jump to section 39:55 - Listen to his philosophy on living
  • And his message to me, your's truly at 34:00

Just a quick note to you though; the video is in its natural state (no edits) and in native Jamaican language - except for me trying to speak English a few times, so please understand.

You may also use the Closed Caption option in YouTube to read along.
