CARIBBEAN WITHOUT BORDERS: RELEASING EVER-CHANGING CULTURES

Benitez-Rojo gives us a graphic description of the Caribbean as "an 'other' shape that keeps changing, with some objects born to light while others disappear into the womb of darkness; change, transit, return, fluxes of sidereal matter." If we do not change and continue to focus on the cultural and linguistic fragmentation that has arisen from our colonized past, we run the risk of remaining static.
