Hi, I’m Kerry-Ann Morris, an all-around proud Jamaican wid a whole heap a passion ’bout history, Jamaican history in particular. When I can, I indulge my historian’s curiousity into learning and unearthing as much as I can about aspects of Jamaica’s past outside of my academic/career interests.
No other subject intrigues me more than the history of my country and people.
I have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in History from the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona campus, and a Master of Science (MSc.) in Disasters, Adaptation ad Development from King’s College London (KCL). My specialisation is natural disasters from both the historical and disaster management perspectives.
Jamaican Echoes is therefore an extension of my love of all things Jamaican from the historical point of view.
Our past echoes all around us in everything we do and say. Come, walk wid mi, as I trace the sources of these echoes in Jamaica’s history in my blog, Jamaican Echoes.
