Pulled from the archives of the Gleaner newspaper, Jamaica's Independence story comes to life through glorious photographs in Jamaica: 50 Golden Moments . Divided into the 5 decades since Independence, each section opens with a short but informative narrative of the people and the events that helped to shape a Nation. Beautifully presented, 50 moments are employed to chronicle Jamaica's history including Bunny Grant's win of the Commonwealth Boxing Title; Decimalisation of the Jamaican Currency; Reggae Sunsplash; Bob Marley and the 1978 Peace Concert; and the Olympic triumphs of Deon Hemmings and Usain Bolt. Jamaica: 50 Golden Moments will be a keepsake like no other for Jamaicans at home and abroad and a fitting reminder for young and old alike, of the small island's stunning achievements.
