  • The various uprisings and independent communities that arose on these islands during the period of enslavement
  • The connections across space and time that were made as a result of the world travels of freedom fighters from the Caribbean
  • The strategies and tactics used by individuals and organisations developed in the region for the achievement of Pan-Africanism
