Guyanese Moving Towards A New Civility
Victor Davson sent the following letter to a few addressees and later stated in a telephone conversation that he intended his remarks for many more persons. He also wished to give “a nod” to the person who initiated the Columbia University connection and those who had planned and organized the Symposium program. In the latter regard, we will be forever grateful to Dr. Juliet Emanuel. http://www.guyfolkfest.org/symposium2004.htm
All the superlatives would apply to her conduct but stringing them together would devalue the accolade. Excellence, however, is the representative word of all her intentions and work and we saw it through issues of protocol, balance and consistency. Indeed, Dr. Emmanuel would insist that Guyanese always had a tradition of accomplishment born of high standards of literacy and civility.
I would say we let ourselves be led astray and I am grateful to be at what could be a starting line of mutual consideration and eventual triumph over racial and social barriers. [eCaroh/Ron. October 2004]

Dear All: [Members of Guyfolkfest Planning Committee]
I want to congratulate you on the success of The Guyfolks Festival. In spite
of its detractors and my own reservations after last year’s experience on the
Medgar Evers campus, it is now clear to me that this enterprise is deserving
of a context as supportive and as dignified as the campus of Columbia
