On August 6, 2012, Jamaica celebrated 50 years of independence from Britain. Since then, Jamaica has had an increasingly powerful influence on global culture. The growth of Jamaican diasporas beyond Britain to the United States, Canada, and West Africa has served to strengthen Jamaica's global reach. Today Jamaica's cultural, economic, and political achievements are felt way beyond its national borders. Jamaica in the Canadian Experience, edited by Andrea Davis and Carl E. James, commemorates Jamaica's independence by acknowledging the immense and widespread contributions Jamaica and Jamaicans have made to Canadian society. These contributions were discussed by the editors at a panel following the official launch of the anthology. Panelists: Carl E.
