Nelson Mandela celebrated his 94th birthday this week and I am reminded about his contributions to the Caribbean. At the 19th meeting of the Caribbean Community and Common Market (Caricom), in St. Lucia, 1998 before his retirement from public office he inspired Caricom. Speaking directly to the heads of government. I wonder how much of what he said bare fruit, because Caricom still seems to be lagging behind. Here is the full text of that speech published on South African History Online
