Event description

Description

Bernard Coard, Deputy Prime Minister of Grenada during the four and a half years of the Revolution and one of the leaders of the New Jewel Movement (NJM) will formally launch book The Grenada Revolution: What Really Happened?: Volume 1 at the NUT Headquarter.

This publication, written from the perspective of an insider and participant in the October 1983 events, details the successes and challenges faced by the Revolution. What Really Happened also charts the tragic culmination of lack of trust between friends and comrades that would lead to the fracturing of the NJM prior to its collapse, the disintegration of the Revolution, shooting dead members of the Revolutionary Army and the killing of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop.

Bernard Coard will answer questions and go into details on issues outlined in his book as well as expand on the matters beyond its cover.
