Fireburn the Documentary

Fireburn the Documentary.

The Fireburn documentary explores the inhumane conditions that existed on the island of St. Croix prior to the labor revolt and looks at the women who were called “Queens” due to their leadership. The documentary interviews historians, cultural ambassadors and educators and looks at the folklore, art and history surrounding the Fireburn. The Fireburn is a story that must be told because it is Virgin Islands’ history, African Diaspora history, Danish history, US history, and Caribbean history…as such, it is World history! Yet, the Fireburn is little known outside the Virgin Islands.

Fireburn The Screenplay

This book brings greater awareness to the Virgin Island’s bloody Labor Revolt of 1878. This pivotal event is known as the Fireburn and it drastically affected the people and economy of the islands. Due to the unique nature of the US Virgin Islands, this story is Caribbean history, Danish history, African diaspora history and World history, yet it is little known outside the islands.

Her book weaves a tale of passion, purpose, and revenge and delivers an electrifying and visceral experience to the reader.

Angela loves madras and identifies with it strongly as a part of her culture. Many islands throughout the Caribbean have chosen to use madras, which is a calico-like print, as the material of choice for cultural costumes, clothing and decoration. Madras originates from the peasant class in India and is named after a small village, Madraspatnam. Madras made its way to the Caribbean in the 1600s when Dutch and British settlers used it in trade.
