Central Lakes College’s next Cultural Thursday event, titled “The Secrets of St. Kitts” will be revealed in two presentations of photo images by sociologist and CLC instructor Gary Payne at noon and at 7p.m. on March 3 in room E354, Brainerd campus.
St. Kitts and nearby Nevis island in the Caribbean Sea make up the smallest nation in the western hemisphere and are mostly known as tropical tourist destinations for wealthy travelers. But the tumultuous five centuries of the tiny nation’s history since Columbus contain some interesting connections between our founding fathers and what is still happening on the islands today. The presentation will focus on this history, culture, people and natural environment of the islands.
