That “second removal,” a mass migration from the Caribbean colonies of young men and women coming to help the ‘motherland’, to make their way in life and even to make their fortunes. The “first removal,” that forced migration out of the continent of Africa into the Americas. There is no reversal, no going back. This entertaining work looks at the true legacy inherited from these two removals.
