This disdain for knowledge is rampantly evident.
We visited UWI this week for the launch of the current issue of Jamaica Journal, in recognition of the National Heritage Trust's 50th Anniversary. To honour the preservation of important aspects of Jamaica's memory, JJ partnered with the JNHT to produce an issue that is broad in its scrutiny of heritage in this country.
They didn't miss the mark. There are rich pieces on various aspects of Jamaica's heritage from thoughtful contributors such as Verene Shepherd, James Parrent and Ainsley Henriques.
