“While the book is truly a landmark achievement not just for ISCR that was at the forefront of seeing to it that it was produced and seeing to it that the quality of the work is second to none. As the years go by and the town evolves as it has done over all these years the book will have to be revised, upgraded to truly reflect all the historic, cultural landmarks that are part and parcel of living in the culture capital.

“When you read this book, it’s going to give you not just a history of Dangriga but it actually takes you into some of the Garifuna culture and the things that make Dangriga the culture capital. You can definitely appreciate from looking at the book and reading the various parts of it, these are all spaces that still exist in this town and that people can actually see so even though in the past people might have thought that this is not a tourist destination and not a place worth visiting, when you read this book you will see that there is so much to actually see and appreciate in Dangriga and a map is included in the book.
“In attendance were Honorable Elodio Aragon, Giovani Pinelo from ISCR, and Minister of State, Frank Mena among other members of the municipality.”
