Greetings once again starlings.

Today's meeting consisted of the following:


The research project was discussed in further details. We arrived at a research question and revised the thesis
statement.
Research Question: To what extent did the colonization period and slavery impact the social,political and
economic legacy of Afrikans dwelling in present day Jamaica?
Working thesis statement: To obtain an exceptional understanding of the biological and cultural heritage of
present day Jamaicans through the examination of the African experience and presence under European rule
within the Jamaican society.
The research paper will also consist of 7 research purposes. These purposes highlight the main focal points that
the research project will want to uncover and we have divided the project accordingly. This means each member
will be focusing on a particular research purpose.
Here are the research purposes:
