Student Reflections on Race and Ethnicity: Star Side of Bird Hill

The research fellowship support through the Stanley Graduate Award for International Research was invaluable to the progress I made on my project. Over the course of the two months that I spent in Barbados, I was able to complete a first draft of my thesis project, a novel set in Barbados, Star Side of Bird Hill. The novel follows two girls, age 10 and 16 as they spend the summer in Barbados with their grandmother.
