9780929540443: Teacha: Autobiography, Colonel C.L.G. Harris of the Maroons

Struggles of education and leadership among the Maroons, a unique culture within Jamaica. A potpourri of anecdotes, letters, and newspaper articles by former legislator and educator, Col. C. L. G. Harris: he shares contributions he made along the cutting edge of change in the governmental and educational structure of his people.

Col. Harris is one of the proud descendants of Grandy Nanny, an eighteenth-century chieftain, who is recognized as one of Jamaica's national heroes. In the mysticism sprinkled throughout the text, she is credited with many advancements of the Maroons.

Educational, historical, mysterious, and entertaining narratives that sketch a culture rich in pride, emotion, and power. Rudiments of the ancient Kramanti language included.

He has excelled in each title, but most of all he prevails as beloved Teacha!
