THE TRINBAGONIAN CONNECTIONS

In February of 2016, Chief Amadu was able to visit Trinidad and Tobago for Carnival and while galivanting the Quenspark Savannah ran into stenciled signs in big block letters: "SIERRA LEONE!"  One, two, three... all of a sudden a pattern developed.

By the end of the day, our diaspora man engaged the Government of the Republic Trinidad and Tobago, via the Diego Martin Cooperation, for them to reinstall a road sign that only had the name: "Sierra Leone Road."  It worked!   

And in August of 2016, we had a small procession on Sierra Leone to go and unveil the road sign; marking that piece of history as the video link illustrates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovEJXroqL-U
