Welcome to the West Indian Critic blog...
This blog exists as a resource for Caribbean feminists, as well as a place for education, inspiration and self-care for Caribbean people living in the islands (like I do!) as well as people of Caribbean heritage living abroad.
Whether you live in Jamaica, London, Brooklyn, or Curaçao, we are all part of one Caribbean family.
One MAJOR issue most feminist and social justice oriented writers have online is they're tired of answering the same old questions...
But the issue is, whether or not we feel "tired" of explaining the same old things... someone new will always need answers.
Nobody started as an expert, but everybody deserves the opportunity to learn.
This guide is for newbies to learn more about feminism & social justice in the Caribbean, as well as a FREE refresher course for anyone who feels they have a good grasp of the issues pressing our nations.
Here's more of what you'll find on this blog:
Learn about issues affecting Caribbean LGBT communities including mental health and the struggle for abolishing anti-buggery laws.
Why black feminism matters for Caribbean women, analysis of the Caribbean experience and practical life advice.
BOOKS & REVIEWS
Education doesn't stop at the end of our schooling. Keep reading to stay up to date on social issues and world events beyond the "trending topics"
“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.”
-- Angela Davis
There's a lot to learn from all global feminist movements, but the unique experiences, geopolitical relationships and culture that developed in the Caribbean mean that Caribbean feminists have different struggles. We have a different legal system, different blend of cultures, and unique intersections of history and identity that deserve representation.
Our culture influences the way we interpret the world and how we "deal with" social justice. If you live in a country where your heritage and cultural identity do not represent the majority -- even in otherwise Black communities -- you can feel alone. Join me in creating a tribe of Caribbean people with an interest in social justice and equality so that we never have to feel alone again.
Caribbean feminism isn't only about what we read and understand about the world around us, but about how we live and interact with the world around us as Caribbean people.
You can find me sipping black coffee with a dreadfully obscure history book or other non-fiction book sitting in my lap. Writing is my reason for waking up on a morning and luckily for me, my career. When I'm not reading or writing, you can find me at the beach, hanging with my hubby, or baking a delicious, decadent chocolate concoction.
