Valentino, Pablo Moses, and Caribbean Organic Philosophy in the Seventies (2003)
This chapter exposes the sporadic yet barely recorded struggle for the hegemony of ideas in the radical Caribbean movement of the seventies. The resilience of the Caribbean revolutionary movement was primarily due to an alliance between middle class intellectuals, who were of the Marxist-Leninist variety, and popular grassroots supporters, who had their own worldview of African-centered revolutionism. The chapter provides a critical Caribbean historical analysis that includes understanding the boundaries to political and social action set by a particular socio-economic and geopolitical moment, as well as exploring the ideological landscape that determines unique social and political outcomes. It cites the works of Trinidadian calypsonian Valentino and Jamaican reggae vocalist Pablo Moses in illustrating the Afro-Caribbean organic philosophy of the seventies.
