London PhD student seeks advice for research visit in March 2018

Dear all,

I am a PhD researcher from King's College London completing my PhD on spaces of Black-led education in London in the 1960s,70s and 80s. Part of my research looks at international youth exchanges by groups of young people from London to black-majority countries in Africa and the Caribbean in the 1980s.

I'll be visiting Grenada for a week at the beginning of March 2018 and also using my time to conduct archival research at the UWI campus. I am looking to speak to people who were involved in or can remember interacting with the following youth exchange groups that took place to Grenada from 1980 to 1983. Any help/contacts/recommendations are kindly welcomed, please feel free to email me via the forum. The details of the exchanges are as follows:

Thank you
