Dr. Adrian Fraser, in collaboration with the University of the West Indies Open Campus, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, will launch his latest book entitled, “The 1935 Riots in St. Vincent: From Riots to Adult Suffrage”.
The launch takes place on Thursday, December 15th at 6:00 pm at Frenches House. The book is the first comprehensive analysis of the 1935 Riots and seeks to give a historical insight into the causes, motivations and impacts of the Riots in St. Vincent.
Eighty years after this obscured revolt, Dr. Fraser distinguishes the peculiar political economy and the Vincentian social and ideological forces that made these events both similar to and different from what happened in the rest of the region.
We understand better our Vincentian reality by looking at our social eruption 80 years ago.
The UWI Open Campus extends a special invitation to the public to attend the launch. Persons are kindly asked to be seated by 5:45 pm.
