This chapter reproduces an interview conducted with Bernard Coard prior to his release from prison in 2009. In this interview, Coard reflects on the radical 1970s in the Caribbean and throughout the Third World. He centers the anti-Gairy struggle in Grenada within the larger anti-imperialist and anti-dictatorial struggles of the Caribbean Left. He points to the highs and lows of the 1979-83 period and argues that, despite committing fratricide, the revolution has placed its stamp on Grenada and the Caribbean that is indelible as it is permanent. He admits, however, that the revolutionaries made many grave errors.
