Mike Henry sets Oxford University Press straight about Jamaica’s National Hero, Nanny of the Maroons

Long time supporter of reparations for slavery, Mike Henry, Jamaica’s Minister of Transport and Works, got an apology from the Oxford University Press about their definition of Maroon.

I suppose it’s not very surprising that a British dictionary would “forget” to mention that the Maroons defeated the British twice !

Go deh, Mike !
