Abstract

It is 1963, one year post independence. Macaima is a fictional, Trinidadian village in a declining cocoa producing district that is haunted by a story of violation suffered by the island’s indigenous peoples. Annabelle Bridgemohan leaves Port of Spain to begin a temporary job there as post mistress in the hope of finding new direction for her life. The extract is taken from a meeting organized by the Women’s Coalition of the ruling party. Brenda Moses upstages the meeting and opens the way for Anna’s own questioning and growing self awareness.
