The Impact of the Presbyterian Church in the Caribbean
In Beyond the Legacy of the Missionaries and East Indians, Jerome Teelucksingh offers a revisionist perspective of the role of the Presbyterian Church in Trinidad. He is particularly interested in social mobility as regards the Indo-Caribbean diaspora in the era following the First World War. He argues that the Presbyterian Church in the Caribbean was particularly interested in women’s rights. As such, he examines the dynamic between local expertise and Canadian missionary work in such social uplift processes.

In the aftermath of World War One, the Labor organizations in the British Caribbean played a crucial role in undermining British colonialism. This was achieved by the persistent demands for self-government and federation. This effort was achieved as a result of an increasing solidarity among unions and labor groups in the British Caribbean colonies.
