Synopsis: Jamaican Proverbs, People and Places reintroduces a core part of Jamaica s cultural heritage which is slowly being eroded due to cultural imperialism, especially from exposure to foreign television, merchandise and music. There is hardly any Jamaican with deep ties to the country who will not agree that for generations their fore-parents have inundated them with proverbs to describe situations or challenges that they faced. Many of these sayings are enveloped in humour to lighten the mood yet the message could not be more profoundly serious. They provide tools necessary for upward social mobility, discipline, knowledge and wisdom. As time progresses and Jamaicans become increasingly immersed in technology the use of oral traditions to impart moral and educational messages has diminished.
