H-Net network on Caribbean Studies.



H-Caribbean is an H-Net network sponsored by the Association of Caribbean Historians. This network seeks to overcome the linguistic, political, and geographic fragmentation that has traditionally characterized the field and region; provide access to debates and discussions on Caribbean studies; act as a resource to academics teaching and researching in associated fields; and reinforce the growing awareness of the region as an important and rich area for further research and study.

A grad student at my institution is having trouble finding issues of The People's Voice newspaper, founded by Leonard P. Howell. Are any of you aware of institutional holdings of this newspaper?

Thank you for considering,
