I am biased I know, as I am the Coordinator of this Temne Reunion.

However, this story or history is unique as it shows the links between a small country in West Africa, and a smaller island in the Caribbean that are being reunited based on facts as captured in this book.

While there are other much larger countries and ethnic groups in Africa that have ties to this island, we are proud as Sierra Leoneans to be the first making this link officially, and we hope other countries will follow as we try to reconnect Africa to the Caribbean, or vice versa.

We will be in Carriacou next week (September 26 - 30). We hope to bring you updated information as things evolve. In the mean time, click and purchase a satisfaction guaranteed book with a lot of pictorial illustrations.
