Rendezvous with History and Geology

Guest Post by Christina Boyd (CARIMAC Intern)

I was fascinated the first time I heard of Gibraltar Camp, a British Colonial Office facility established as a haven for civilian evacuees from the British Mediterranean fortress of Gibraltar, during World War II. Mostly women and children were housed in wooden barracks buildings across acres of former sugar land at Mona, on the outskirts of Kingston. Later, Jewish and other wartime refugees also lived there, on a lower level.

Farewell Harry

“Sad to say I’m on my way

Won’t be back for many a day

My heart is down

My head is turning around

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town” (“Jamaica Farewell” by Harry Belafonte)

As Harry bid his farewell on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 at the age of 96. He did not just “leave a little girl in Kingston town,” but rather, he left behind many faces with smiles turned upside down.
