    170 years fuh Buxton 1840 — 2010

    My home village in Guyana. Big celebration this July, it's too bad I'll miss it.

    "BUXTON is a village located approximately twelve miles from Georgetown, the capital city of Guyana. The village was built on land purchased by former slaves, and it remains a predominantly Black Guyanese community. The village of Buxton-Friendship historically started out as separate villages that were purchased and built by freed African slaves, they were amalgamated into one around 1840-1841. By the beginning of the nineteen sixties, Buxton-Friendship was possibly the most progressive and prosperous village in Guyana. Buxton is known for its numerous scholars and fertile backlands. One of the main crops grown in the backlands is the Buxton Spice mango. This mango is fleshy and sweet like others, but is distinguished by its unique spicy taste."

    "Buxton was once seen as the educational capital of Guyana with three secondary schools; Buxton Government Secondary School, County High School and Smith’s College.
    *There with four primary schools; St. Augustine’s Anglican School/Friendship Government School, Friendship Methodist (Wesleyan) School, Arundel Congregational (Missionary) School and St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic School.
    * The first High School on the East Coast was in Buxton. (County High )
    * Buxton produced 5 or 6 Guyana Scholars.
    * Buxton had over seven ministers of Government."
    "Every onlooker is either a coward or a traitor." — Frantz Fanon

    “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.” Frederick Douglass
