Quote from the interview:
"Many of the achievements of black America can be attributed to a person of Caribbean heritage, and this is a fact that is often overlooked. Influential writers and thinkers of the Harlem Renaissance, proponents the Civil Rights movement, and many of todays artists and entertainers have a Caribbean background. Caribbean American parents and children need to know how powerful their heritage is, not just as a person of African, Indian, Chinese, or other ethnicity, but as a descendant of Caribbean people. For America, I feel that it is important for non-Caribbean people to know that the Caribbean is more than just a vacation destination that produces beautiful music and beautiful people. It is a small place that produces beautiful minds as well."
