An Overview of the Caribbean Region: Education in Cultural Context and a Portrait of C. L. R. James of Trinidad.
Dardaine-Ragguet, Patricia; And Others
International Journal of Educational Reform, v3 n3 p254-63 Jul 1994
Born in Trinidad in 1901, C. L. R. James challenged the formal education system--resisting authority, refuting colonial historical writing, and refusing to seek tertiary schooling. A self-made scholar and activist, he started his own university and struggled to help peasant workers; the poor; and non-Caucasians cheated by colonialism, capitalism, fascism, and racism.
