"As black people around the world continue to search for "liberation blueprints" perhaps the work of Lloyd McCarthy might prove to be a guidebook. By looking at the intellectual development of Claude McKay and Michael Manley he mines the Afro-Jamaican traditions for its gold. Here is work that restores the importance of looking to the common man for leadership and moral direction. Poets and politicians can meet on the same road and at times, talk the talk. New World Africans need to listen."
