This journey is all about unearthing the stories of Grenada's revolution, the fascinating period when Maurice Bishop and his followers, educated in the UK, went home to their beautiful spice isle and overthrew the government.
It is a period I want to revisit because of it's historical significance for Grenada, particularly on the eve of the revolution's 30th anniversary on March 13th 2009.
Grenada, although small has a big story to tell. I know almost every Grenadian out there has an opinion on the politics of the period and perhaps a personal story of their involvement. So if you played a part in the revolution, or simply want to share your opinion on the revolutionary party, American intervention or any aspect of the time, I'd love to hear from you.
The Revo Speaks will rewrite the story of the revolution through the memories of the people that lived it. With your input we'll be able to unravel:
What it felt like to be a part of the Revo
Why it's still so important for Grenadians, home and abroad
Why the Revo failed, what led to it's self-destruction
And how people feel about the American intervention after so many years
