    Wink Welcome Home, First Black AG of America

    AMERICA'S FIRST BLACK Attorney-General, Eric Holder, set foot on Barbados soil yesterday, for the first time since being sworn in three months ago.

    Holder, who is of Barbadian ancestry, arrived at Grantley Adams International Airport around 4:40 p.m. He was met by Deputy Prime Minister, Attorney-General and Minister of Home Affairs Freundel Stuart; Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine McClean; Permanent Secretary, Defence and Security, Gilbert Greaves; US Chargé D'Affaires, D. Brent Hardt and his wife Sasha Hardt; acting Commissioner of Police Bertie Hinds and Chief of Protocol Hughland Allman.

    After relaxing and chatting briefly with the welcoming party in the airport's Grace Adams Suite, the man who was appointed by United States President Barack Obama was whisked away under tight security to Hilton Barbados, where the Aquatic Gap was blocked by uniformed police and heavily armed Task Force officers.

    The black sports utility vehicle (SUV) carrying Holder circled the Hilton's two main entrances before depositing him, along with Secret Service and other security personnel, at the ground floor entrance.

    He then went up to his suite from which he was not scheduled to reappear until later in the night to meet with Prime Minister David Thompson.

    Holder also spoke briefly at the Hilton with Hardt, who has been in charge of the US Embassy here following the departure of former ambassador Mary Ourisman.

    A new ambassador to Barbados is yet to be appointed by President Obama.

    Holder's three-day visit will include talks with attorneys-general of CARICOM at the Hilton, as well as a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Thompson, Stuart, McClean and Minister of Housing and Lands Michael Lashley.

    He is also scheduled to speak at the official opening of Tamarind Hall Municipal Complex in Horse Hill, St Joseph, today. This complex will be renamed in Holder's honour.

    Holder was born in The Bronx, New York, to Eric Holder Sr, who moved from St Joseph to the United States at age 11, and Miriam Holder who was born in New Jersey and whose family's roots are in St Philip.

    Following Obama's three-day stay in neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago for the Fifth Summit of the Americas in April, Holder's visit marks the second official sojourn by a top-ranked American government official in the Caribbean.
