  2. Hi Jinny,

    I’m very pleased that this can be useful to Island students. Yes, you can use the material here. Most of my work is copyrighted using the Creative Commons License 2.5 which is BY-NC-SA. It is the license used by many educators.

    This Black History month I have been uploading more of my research developed for Positive Presence of Absence that might be useful. I will include the addresses below.
