A giant on the Caribbean legal landscape – Stabroek News

Dear Editor,

Fenton Harcourt William Ramsahoye passed away on or about the 27th December, 2018 in Barbados at the age of 89. Being out of the jurisdiction at the time, one was not able to pay tribute to a man who was a giant on the Caribbean legal landscape and was held by the writer in awe and reverence over a period of 45 years.

The following words of tribute are now being proffered.

I always initiated our conversations whether on the phone or face to face by referring to him as “The Doctor, what surgery are you performing now?”. Those words were uttered out of a sense of respect for my elders and seniors; I could never bring myself to call him to his face Fenton.

My first encounter with the “Doctor” was in 1974 in a Courtroom in Guyana when I was a rookie Junior on the other side in a…

Marking the Grave of the First African American Landscape Artist

Beneath a stretch of grass in Monroe, Michigan’s Historic Woodland Cemetery is the grave of a leading nineteenth-century landscape painter who was among the first African American artists to gain international fame. Robert S. Duncanson’s work hangs in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), and the National Gallery of Art. And yet here at his final resting place, his grave has remained unmarked since he died in 1872.

Born in 1821 into a free black family in Seneca County, New York, Duncanson later moved to the Midwest, living in Cincinnati and Detroit. “Duncanson began his career as a housepainter and taught himself art by copying engravings of European masterpieces,” writes art historian Lisa E. Farrington in Source: Notes in the History of…

Fronteras: How African-Americans Shaped Bexar County’s Landscape

The story of San Antonio is entwined with that of the Spaniards, Mexicans, Native Americans, and Anglo settlers. But the African-American story of the Alamo City is not one that’s widely known.

Everett Fly, an award-winning San Antonio architect and landscape architect, joins us on Fronteras to peel back the veil on the hidden history of San Antonio (0:55).

The east side of San Antonio is predominantly African-American, but Fly says it wasn’t always (2:48).

Fly says the accuracy of the Spanish archives helped verify African-American land ownership before the Texas Revolution and after the Civil War (4:22). One of those black landowners was the first man to shed blood in the Texas Revolution.
