Historian marks T&T’s Jubilee
Author and historian Michael Anthony is launching a new book on Wednesday to pay tribute to T&T’s golden anniversary of Independence. Builders of the Nation of Trinidad & Tobago, is Anthony’s 31st book, and the second one the prolific author has produced this year, following his recent Christopher Columbus—A Close Look at the Man and his Voyages launched in June. Fifty “builders” have been chosen for this tribute. Anthony said: “Many of them have made the way easier by their work in the field of politics, such as Dr Eric Williams, Dr Rudranath Capildeo and both the labour leaders Uriah Butler and Captain Andrew Cipriani; while others, like Audrey Jeffers in social welfare, Beryl McBurnie and Boscoe Holder in the dance, and Hasely Crawford as well as Ahamad Charles and Roger Gibbon for sport, have been pinpointed.
