Where are your monuments, your battles, martyrs?
Where is your tribal memory? Sirs,
in that gray vault. The sea. The sea
has locked them up. The sea is history.
– Derek Walcott, “The Sea is History”
Photographs taken by David Knight Sr. somewhere between the Virgin Islands and Guyana (early 1980s).
