Echoes of Our History

Our history echoes around us. It’s in everything we say and do. In the wonderfully informative Jamaican Echoes, blogger Kerry-Ann Morris takes us on a truly fascinating historical journey. A proud Jamaican “wid a whole heap a passion” for her nation’s history, Morris shares this zeal one blog at a time. She delves into the little know facets of our history and unearths the better known pieces of our past.

We know of the infamous deeds of the White Witch of Rose Hall but how many are familiar with the murderous Lewis Hutchinson, Jamaica’s earliest recorded serial killer, who bedeviled 18th Century St. Ann. And only a history buff could be motivated by an article on JPS’s extortionary rates to get curious about the introduction of electricity to Jamaica and the cost of this precious resource back in the day.

Come, walk with Kerry-Ann. It’s an intriguing journey.
