While planning my exit from the COLD of North America in 1979, I was advised by Winston Chung (who I met in Baltimore) who was responsible for developing/guiding Santos FC of Kingston and St Andrew and schoolboy team Clarendon College to the 1977 Da Costa Cup Title, to make a link with the Santos club when I got home. On my return to local soil, I met coach Jackie Bell and turned out for the Santos FC, trained daily and played for a few months before being offered the coaching post.
AFRICAN RESISTANCE CULTURE
Horace Campbell in Rasta and Resistance: From Marcus Garvey to Walter Rodney reminds us that:African resistance to slavery began on the slave ship and continued up tothe present. It was the struggles on the slave ship, which led to the chaining of the slaves. The restlessness of the slaves caused revolts to be endemic and the slaves broke tools, committed suicide, ran away, and mothers preferred their children to die at birth rather than to grow up as slaves. (1987, 20–21)
By The Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey
The time has come for the Blackman to forget and cast behind him his hero worship and adoration of other races, and to start out immediately to create and emulate heroes of his own. We must canonize our own martyrs and elevate to positions of fame and honor Black men and women who have made their distinct contributions to our racial history.
