Forward Home: The Power of the Caribbean Diaspora

Gus Franklyn-Bute Editor-in-Chief

Caribbean people and its Diaspora are on truly on the move, arcing geographic circles with greater and greater circumferences as they travel more than at any other decade in our history, the rude impact of war included.  Caribbean people and the Diaspora are changing the world around them as they venture into brave newer worlds in search of opportunities to study, work and live beyond the traditional metropolitan destination like London, New York, Miami, Toronto, Amsterdam and Paris.  But is this generation, and those Diaspora Communities from prior transatlantic migration era making any real impact to the economies and livelihoods from whence they came? What power do they really possess, if any, to truly change the Caribbean region from beyond metropolitan neighbourhoods?

This intriguing 2011 documentary, directed by Lisa Wickham, with Keith Nurse, Executive Producer, and Sheldon Felix, Director of Photography, and Production by Imagine Media International, sheds light on this question.  The full documentary film is definitely worth seeing.
