Then & Now interactive and informative

Did you know that the first guest of this talk documentary, Mrs. Eugenie Todman-Smith was the Community Development Officer of the Virgin Islands in 1966 and one of only two women (the other one being, Ms. Pearl Varlack) ¬†out of a total of twenty four people who met with Dr. Mary Proudfoot, the constitutional commissioner appointed by the United Kingdom in 1966, to look into political conditions in the territory of the Virgin Islands. From the Proudfoot report a new constitution for the Virgin Islands was introduced. (Eugenia O’Neal) It was this constitution that in effect gave the territory full self governance.

  1. I am a Virgin Islander who lives outside of the territory, I did not know this and I find it very informative. I look forward to your continuous post and I will keep trying to pickup the show on livestream.
