Daniel Rajkumar

In commemoration of Emancipation Day, we share this painting by talented ten-year-old Daniel Rajkumar.

The piece, In the Cane, shows an enslaved African cutting cane in a cane field in Trinidad during the time of slavery. The piece reminds us about the hard labour provided by Africans who were enslaved on sugar plantations.

Daniel is a student of Reform Presbyterian Primary School. His principal is Joel Beharry and his teacher is Lystra Barran.
