The Maroons VS the British…Okay it’s the BBC..but the memories and Nanny myths…

Many of you may have read the story about the “so called” attack on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reports. When I first read it all I could remember is the Maroons versus the British from my history class days at high school in Jamaica. I loved history and recalled my fascinating when our history teacher Miss Grant talked about the Maroons. She was one of my favorite teachers. She had a way to describe things to take you back to that time and place.

There were also the great myths we learned about the Maroons. The one I remember is hearing how Nanny caught bullets in her buttocks and farted (fired) them back at the British.
