When we teach decolonization, we tend to focus on Africa and Asia. Many colonies in the Pacific Islands and the Caribbean also gained their independence after the Second World War. In a previous post, I discussed the fifth Pan-African Congress in Manchester in 1945, which included representatives from the Caribbean and called for the end of imperialism in all colonies. One way to weave the Caribbean into our teaching of decolonization is by focusing on the independence of Jamaica.
