Growing up, Sinclair didn’t understand why so many islanders wanted to escape to England or any other place besides Grenada. He soon learned that no one wanted to remain on the island because work was scarce and wages were low. Not only did West Indians run away to England but to wherever they could find work. Even Sinclair’s parents traveled to London with his brother and two sisters, leaving him to be raised by an adopted aunt and uncle. It was a challenge for Sinclair.

Would he ever understand why he was left behind?
Would he survive the trauma?
Would he ever see his family again?
It’s this kind of dilemma many West Indians faced in searching for higher ground.

Like many born in the Caribbean before and after him, George, the young man from Grenada, searched for higher ground and landed on Long Island, New York, USA, where he still resides.
