Caribbean calendar

It can be Black History Month all year round with the Heroes of the Caribbean Calendar 2004. Twelve photographs of very different people are accompanied by biographical summaries. Joan Armatrading smiles infectiously behind her guitar; Viv Richards raises his bat to acknowledge the crowd's cheers. There are writers such as Merle Collins and Louise Bennett, as well as figures recalled for their controversial political views, such as Frantz Fanon and Kwame Ture. The monthly diary sections mark nationally observed celebrations and holidays as well as birth and death dates for yet more heroes, ranging from Toussaint L'Ouverture to Bob Marley.
