The islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao (popularly known as the ABC islands), together with St. Martin, make up the Dutch Caribbean. There are many talented writers from the Dutch Caribbean, and this month, I am pleased to feature the poet, Lasana M. Sekou, from the island of St. Martin. For more Dutch-Caribbean poets, check out the List of Caribbean Poets.
Stay tuned during the month of November for more on Lasana Sekou. I am also declaring November as Support a Caribbean Poet month. Throughout my posts in November, I will be sharing many ways in which you can support the work of Caribbean poets, so be sure to check in regularly.
