Black Power, My Inheritance By the time of my birth, less than a decade had passed since the young nation of Trinidad and Tobago had been thrust into the tumultuous, global phenomenon of Black Power. At that time, the idea of revolution had been pervasive. Citizens of Trinidad and Tobago had joined in the worldwide demands for freedom and equality for the non-white people. I was born after the storm of the Black Power Movement of 1970 - a period of mass demonstrations; strikes and other forms of protest; and an army mutiny. Yet my birth was just in time for me to be raised on the ideals of The Movement - a child of ’70 , an inheritor of Black Power. The images in this series are a reflection of my commitment to identify and represent the movement as it has shifted and adapted itself across generations. It is a grappling with my own family’s political legacy.
