Dear Editor,

The Jamaica Observer of Tuesday, August 21, 2018 carried an item on page seven which read, 'Gov't to offer houses, cash to occupants of Garvey home'.

St Ann Heritage Foundation is very satisfied regarding the efforts of Cuture Minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange to make the project happen. What we do recall is that over a year ago a storyboard had been placed on the grounds at the St Ann's Bay Library. The storyboard outlined that the project would be managed by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. Can they say how far they have reached?

Currently, heritage tourism is taking a lead in the industry, so consider what Marcus Garvey's home is doing and can do.

Talk about what the story To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee did for Alabama.

Let us all, as Jamaicans, collectively have the complete restoration of 32 Marcus Garvey Way.
