About the Author:

Lasana M. Sekou is the the author of ten books of poetry, monologues, and short stories. He is the editor of National Symbols of St. Martin - A Primer, on the culture, historical personalities, and natural environment of St. Martin (1996), and The Independence Papers - Readings on a New Political Status for St. Maarten/ St. Martin, the island's first compilation of political essays (1990). In 1991, Sekou was the executive producer for Fête - The First Recording of Traditional St. Martin's Festive Music by Tanny & The Boys. During the mid-1980s the St. Martiner co-directed and wrote for Traditions, the annual drama extravaganzas that changed the face of theater in St. Martin. Later he directed the annual Christmas television shows of Youth Explorers, an acting ensemble of teenagers. Sekou's books Nativity & Dramatic Monologues for Today (1988) and Love Songs Make You Cry (1989; St. Martin's first published collection of short stories) have been classroom text at York University (Canada) and Kenyon College (USA) respectively. His poetry and short stories are taught in and selected for the exam-reading list of St. Martin's high schools. Sekou's works have been cited in classrooms of other Caribbean islands--e.g. as exam reading material in St. Croix. He has guest-lectured at high schools in Anguilla, Tortola, and St. Thomas; and every year for the last 12 years in most of St. Martin's primary and secondary schools on St. Martin and Caribbean history, literature, culture, and self-motivation.
