Remembering the Merikins: Short Documentary
200 years ago, the Merikins — free black settlers from the United States — arrived in Trinidad, establishing close-knit communities that survive to this day. This special programme of events celebrates their history through words, images, and music, including the launch of a new book, River of Freedom.
The Merikins: this short documentary, directed by Dahlia Dennison, tells the story of the settlers arrival in Trinidad.
