Literary Nonfiction. Photography. Poetry. Caribbean Studies. MY ANTIGUA, AN ISLAND REVEALED is a collection of beautifully crafted and often poignant photographs, stories and poems by 13 "at risk" students in a media education program sponsored by the government of Antigua and Barbuda. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go toward supporting further development of such programs designed to enhance the lives of young Antiguan artists and writers.
"The photographs and writing in this wonderful collection remind us that the human heart in undiminishable, and that people, no matter how easily described as marginal, are often superb artists and wordsmiths."—Ken McClane, W.E.B. Dubois Professor Emeritus, Cornell University
"A wonderful medley of photographs, folk treasures, and creative ethnography, begging to be duplicated in other Caribbean islands."—Cecilia Green, Associate Professor of Sociology, Syracuse University
