- Program Description
This Black History month special was sot on location in Jamaica by WGBH’s own Dasal Banks. It tells the story of the group of escaped slaves who fled to the hills of Jamaica and established their own society which continues to this day.
Their culture is still rich in African traditions preserved from memories of the past, yet the program shows they clearly recognize the need to adapt to an often uncertain yet promising future.
