This Friday, November 22, Mr. Jesus Ken will speak on Corozal history growing with the political movement. We are kindly requesting your presence. Lecture will commence at 7:00 P.M. at the Corozal House of Culture.

The Corozal House of Culture values the importance of oral historical retrieval and is pleased to present the final lecture in the ‘Perspectives of our Past’ Historical Lecture Series. The lecture series is a vital link into Corozal’s distant and not so distant past. Corozal's rich history will be exposed through the words of our elders.

I hope the Corozal House of Culture did videos of the presentations in this series. This kind of oral history is irreplaceable.

Our final lecture last night was a fascinating one. Mr. Owsald Staine's memoirs of Corozal Town in the 1940's captured all in attendance. This gentleman gave the name of the first taxi driver who ran customers up and down to Consejo Village when it was the only departure point to Mexico, he recalled the name of the first Ferry Operator at the Rio Hondo international crossing ...!! We are so grateful to Mr. Oswald and all of our lecturers who participate in the series. A special thank you to our collaborator; the National Library Service and Information System for filming all of the lectures.
