speech -on "cNEGRITUDE" at the Muni-
cipal Theatre, Martinique, Feb, 14*.
'"La Negritude n'est pas du racism."
R.egritude is not racism- said the
distinguished speaker, one of the ov-
iginators, with his'close friend a
Aime Cesaire, of this electrifying
term. His visit had been preceded by
the marvellous performances of 150
Senegalese artists. whose feats, ig-
nored by Paris, causedPierre Lucette
to write a report bitterly critical.
of such narrow-mindedness, and thus
he was taken off his'television pro-
gramme last Saturday. 18,000 people,
of whom 6,000 were children, saw the
Senegalese exposition: it was no
In his address, M.Senghor made the
following points: "No one can ignore
.Negritude, which is the culture of
the black people ...I'm not talking
politics; 2 have always placed cul-
ture above politics. Those who ad-
vanced AIegritude earlier thought,and
I still' think, that politics should
be of service to culture and not
culture at the service of politics,
as (alas) too many politicians and
even Third World. writers believe."
Defining "la ..egritude" M.Sengbhor,
declared that it was "the .accumulation
of the civilised value,o of the Black
world". It was a solid way, for ey-
ery Negro and all black people, toj
live as Negroes. In effect to -be a
Negro w- -ly-a state, a .collec-
tion of/sitgions, but also a poSit-
ive action of an individual, in thd
black collectivity of the Black POople
After referring to humanists and
artists. who appreciate Black people
through their works, citing the re-
marks of Rimbaud.and Picasso, he went
on: "Despite the vigorous championship
of 'emiUent. writers, artists and cri-
tics, 3legritude has been, since (its
affirmation, the object of virulent

CANDID COMMENT W.S. Stevens
The Return from France
It has been announced (Weds.)that
Colonel Premier John. and his big
delegation to France (saidto have
been intended to call at Brussels
nd West Germany as well as Britain
and Haiti) have returned. It is to
be hoped that they have arrived home
in a blaze of glory.
Some of us feel that Dominicans
will however not have much to rejoice
about, seeing that our two French
neighbours have not much'to teach us
in certain directions, judging from
a recent Trinidad press account -
of what is happening in Martinique
One good thing Col.Premier Patrick
John can do. while deliberating what
to tell us about the tour is,to
release, immediately on his return
from the other side of he Atlantic,
both the P.14 D. Report of Inquiry
and the Amnesty of Dreads Report.
The Banana Inquiry i.s in progress,
and it is to be hoped that there
will be no delay in that release
when the time comes.
OUR YOUTH: Dominicans segm totally
unaware that schools (primary asiell
as secondary) are not assiduously.
preparing children to be good stu-
dents and good and- useful bitizehs.
.Inadequacy of staff causes whole
classes at the very beginning of the
term to be sent home and the reason
given is lack of teachers. It has
come out from good sources that the
Education Minister is unable.to find
fands to employ more teachers, Does
that mean that money voted for edu-
cation for the financial year has
run short in six months?
Yet we understand that the Defence
Force is being increased and that a
fair amount of money is being spent
on recruits abroad.
As yet"there is no Approved-School
for the thousands of children who do
NOT go to. school. Attendance Officers
