Culture Consciousness

Culture Consciousness stems from the desire to dig into the Caribbean region’s history. These nations have been influenced by their colonial past and by the generations that followed thereafter. The importance of literature is showcased, as literary and artistic representations lay the foundation for nation-building. How do we define who are we as a Caribbean people?
