In his account for the year 1698, Labat included his impressions regarding the slaves of Martinique: "The dance is their favourite passion. I don't think that there is a people on the face of the earth who are more attached to it than they. When the Master will not allow them to dance on the Estate, they will travel three and four leagues, as soon as they knock off work at the sugar-works on Saturday, and betake themselves to some place where they know that there will be a dance."(''Nouveau Voyage aux Isles de l'Amérique'', Vol. II) '''Devon Sheldon Smith''' (born 21 October 1981 in Hermitage, Grenada Hermitage , Grenada) is a cricketer who represents the West Indies (West Indies cricket team).

Since 2008 the school has had a student exchange program with the Heritage Institute of Technology (Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata) (HITK) in Calcutta (Kolkata) India, with HITK students coming to NJIT.

Especially in Guadeloupe, it is not uncommon to hear Conch shells being blown near ports at dawn and during Carnival times too. Many bands are making of the Conch shell a main instrument. * In the Bahamas, broken or up-turned conch shells are imbedded into the tops of outdoor walls in an effort to maintain home security; the broken or up-turned shells are sharp enough to cut any intruder who attempts to jump or crawl over the wall.
