West Indian heritage
Dear Dr. Gates.
My family comes from the island of St. Lucia in the West Indies. St. Lucia was the battle prize to England after being tossed back and forth between France and England. Our fascinating culture is both french and english. We speak a romantic french creole, different to Haiti and New Orleans, and sometimes similar. I believe St Lucia is unique because of this rich history. My extended family emigrated to the US in the 60′s and 70′s. Thank you
