Class gathers oral histories of Caribbean residents in Brooklyn


Students met with Caribbean residents in Brooklyn over spring break to record their life stories as part of an engaged learning course in oral history and urban ethnography.

The four-day field trip was designed for students “to observe and conduct ethnographic research and talk to as many people as possible … so the Caribbean immigrants that remain there can see themselves reflected in representations of their community,” said Oneka LaBennett, associate professor of Africana studies in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Students were able to “see how Brooklyn is changing through gentrification … and how gentrification is affecting the Caribbean community there,” she said, particularly in Flatbush and Crown Heights. “Some once-vital immigrant businesses have shuttered because they can’t afford the increasing rent. Brooklyn is now one of the most expensive places in the U.S. to live.”

There also is an accompanying cultural displacement, she said: “Maybe you can afford to stay in the neighborhood, but you can no longer afford to go to restaurants or take part in cultural events. Our community partner is trying to address that.”

Working with the nonprofit arts and culture center CaribBEING House, the class took a walking tour of Caribbean Brooklyn with its director, Shelley Worrell.

“She pointed out storefronts that were once vital bakeries or restaurants, that were closed or had signs on their doors saying they would be closing … [and] the juxtaposition of a Caribbean eatery right next to a hip café,” LaBennett said. “Students are witnessing gentrification as it is taking place, in real time.”

In class, the 12 students had mapped sites in Caribbean Brooklyn, hosted Worrell and other guest speakers, learned oral history methodologies and read ethnographic studies of Brooklyn including LaBennett’s book, “She’s Mad Real: Popular Culture and West Indian Girls in Brooklyn” (2011).

“Crown Heights was just starting to experience gentrification” during her research there in the early 2000s, she said. “[The students] saw the after, and what Flatbush and Crowns Heights are like now. They’re forming a more complex picture of the community.”

Worrell said the students “were very engaged, very knowledgeable. They had done pretty in-depth research on different cultural assets and even social movements that have been happening in Flatbush and surrounding neighborhoods.”


Teaching assistant Elena Guzman, a doctoral student in anthropology who lived in Flatbush from 2006 to 2008, noticed some differences there now, such as the presence of “a lot of real estate agencies. For [the residents], this signals the shift.”

The class conducted 12 hourlong oral history interviews at CaribBEING House, and students ventured on their own to meet and talk with shop owners and others.

“We endeavored to pair students with someone who shared similar interests,” LaBennett said. “If there’s a point of connection between the student and the interviewee, then there’s a basis for how their story will resonate. It was a complicated process, but each student came away from the interview just glowing from the experience.”

The interview subjects included community organizers and members of the arts and cultural community, a schoolteacher with Haitian immigrant parents, a Garifuna woman from Honduras, a Jamaican Cornell alumna and a Guyanese LGBTQ advocate.

“A core value of the class was how important oral history is in illuminating stories that are often not heard,” Guzman said. “It offers people a space to testify about their own place in history, like the record shop owner who’s been working with his wife for 20 years.”

Worrell, a half Indo-Caribbean Flatbush native born to immigrant parents, founded CaribBEING in 1999. In early 2015, CaribBEING House opened next to the Flatbush Caton Market, an area now facing redevelopment. She said in some ways Flatbush “is no longer reflective of what has been the culture of the community for decades. We want to preserve and protect the cultural integrity of the neighborhood, which is largely Caribbean … one of the largest immigrant groups in the city” and perhaps 20 percent of the population, she said.

Identifying the Flatbush area as the Little Caribbean promotes it as “a cultural asset or a cultural destination,” she said. “We’ve spent decades building a place in greater New York City – politically, culturally, economically.”

Seeing oneself as Caribbean embraces multiple national identities, Guzman said, even among those with “a strong national pride” in being Trinidadian, Jamaican, Haitian or of other origins: “There is an ever-expanding definition of the region and also in being Caribbean as well.”

The oral history project and field trip were supported by an Engaged Opportunity Grant to LaBennett.

“These stories are often overlooked or not told, or if they are told, they are not told from an authentic place,” Worrell said. “I feel that working with Oneka’s class really gave this community an opportunity to present their stories in a way I haven’t seen done before.”

LaBennett said the students “gained valuable skills from the experience, and the partnership with CaribBEING and with the local community represented a unique learning opportunity for them.”

Oneka YN-35 - History

The Bald Eagle Sportsmen’s Association was formed in 1942 by a group of friends who were interested in recreational shooting and the preservation of wildlife of all kinds. The original members had a small range on a property referred to as Ryan’s Resort, on Route 8, Bald Eagle Lake, White Bear, Minnesota. It was located somewhere on the northwest corner on Bald Eagle Lake. The Bald Eagle name of our organization came from that original location.

The club grew in membership and became incorporated in on September 12, 1949. The original Board of Directors were W.C.Tuchfarber, Elmer F. Schroth, Roy H. Novotny, Richard Smith, and Ted Marcotte, all listing their addresses as Bald Eagle Lake, White Bear, MN.

Also, in 1949 Mr. Louis Arcand accepted $5 (which was the going rate at the time) from Minnesota Pipeline Company for “right of way” to bury oil lines across a portion of his land in what was, at the time Oneka Township. These buried pipelines along with the pond and marshy area, made the parcel of land un-suitable for profitable farming, and those oil lines still run beneath our entry road, 100 yard range, the “down range” of the trap/skeet range, and portions of our archery course.

In 1957 a member of the club purchased our existing eighty-acre property from Mr. Arcand. This makes us one of the oldest residents of our portion of Hugo. In 1958 a Minnesota National Guard Construction Battalion built roads and ranges on the property. This has been our home since that time, providing a safe facility to the public for firearms safety training, law enforcement training and practice, and of course, the fellowship of interested sportsmen.

In 1972 Oneka Township was annexed by the City of Hugo. It was also during that time period that the first special use permit for our Association was issued by the City of Hugo. By that permit our membership was limited to 225 members. In subsequent years that limit was raised to 350.

In July of 1987, Mark Peterson, President of The White Bear Lake Archers, appeared before General Membership meeting requesting use of the facilities for his organization. Archers were then admitted for BESA membership. The first BESA Archery tournament was held in April of 1988. Today, our shoots draw as many as 70 archers and are held on Sundays.

The Seventies and Eighties were years of tree planting, and construction of range covers. These were the clubs first attempt at sound abatement. Most of the pines on our land have been planted by club membership. There was great contention with the pipeline company that insists that the ground above and around the lines be cleared and visible from a plane for inspection. Some of our current trees were in payment from Minnesota Pipeline as a settlement for removing other trees. Members built the shooting covers too, eventually adding old carpeting to the sides to help muffle muzzle blast.

I n 2005 the State Legislature passed the Minnesota Shooting Range protection act, voiding several points of the Hugo conditional use permit including the 350 membership limit. It took several months of discussions with the Hugo City council, but the revised conditional use permit was approved in August of 2007. In the mid 1990’s as other ranges were pushed out of existence by the expansion of the metropolitan area, our membership reached the 350 limit and has stayed there. Our waiting list for membership had grown to over one hundred individuals and given the high membership renewal rate, the wait for admission was about 5 years long. From very early on, the club has been involved in several competitive shooting events such as DCM shooting before it was replaced by the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The club still hosts 4 CMP shoots a year. The club offers one of the best Skeet and (3) Trap ranges in the Twin Cities.

The club serves the community by providing a practical place for our local law enforcement agencies to log their required range practice time. We host several juvenile gun safety classes and Boy Scout troops every year, providing facilities to several different programs. Though we no longer host Bowling Pin shoots. Other events that have been added over the years have been The Pistol League, Cowboy Action Shooting, and the Cast Bullet League. After a long absence, Muzzle Loaders are allowed again. As the farmland around the club has been rezoned residential, BESA has continued to work to be a good neighbor and has enlisted the help of the NRA and Minnesota DNR in improving the design and construction of range covers and course of fire to have modern facilities, and state of the art sound abatement. Bald Eagle Sportsman’s remains an asset to the surrounding communities.


Research

Current research projects include:

1. A book situating Guyana’s marginality in scholarly discourses of the Caribbean against its historical and contemporary centrality to global understandings of race, gender, and the environment. This project is based on an interdisciplinary treatment of Indo- and Afro-Guyanese identities, and on analyses of Guyana’s popular cultural engagements with other Caribbean nations and the global reach of its mining exports.

2. A book examining genre-defying Black women artists who work along the multiple registers of music, writing, and visual art as mechanisms for fostering transnational feminisms and embedding global South narratives in cities such as New York, Port of Spain, Cologne, Amsterdam, and Paris.

Panel discussion: “Public History in New York City’s Cultural Life”

L-R: Suzanne Wasserman, Deborah F. Schwartz, Ron Grele, Dave Herman, Ruth Sergel, Oneka LaBennett

The American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning and the Gotham Center for New York City History co-sponsored a panel discussion on “Public History in New York City’s Cultural Life” at the City University of New York Graduate Center on Monday, April 6th. The event was held in memory of Adina Back, a historian, educator, and colleague who many at the ASHP knew personally. The evening’s five panelists represented an array of backgrounds, and each offered a unique approach to public history. All five panelists’ presentations suggested intriguing possibilities for engaging with local communities to shape and inform public history projects. Oneka LaBennett, research director for the Bronx African-American History Project, described the way her project works with students and academics at Fordham University to reach out to members of the community. Deborah F. Schwartz, president of the Brooklyn Historical Society, discussed her institution’s efforts to enlist Vietnam veterans and members of a Carroll Gardens parish to shape the Society’s exhibitions. Ruth Sergel, an artist and filmmaker, described how her desire to document personal responses to the events of September 11, 2001 led to her subsequent project, a yearly event commemorating the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. Dave Herman gave an entertaining presentation about the City Reliquary, a small non-profit storefront collection he founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and Ron Grele, the former director of the Columbia University Oral History Research Office, put the evening in perspective by reminding us that it is our task to complicate, rather than oversimplify, history for public consumption. The enthusiasm of the participants and the event’s large turnout despite the rainy April night suggested that public history is alive and thriving in New York, and that the role of public history in the city’s cultural melange is sure to grow as long as the city’s past continues to inspire new generations of scholars, historians, and artists and their audiences.

Oneka LaBennett is the author of She's Mad Real: Popular Culture and West Indian Girls in Brooklyn, and editor of Racial Formation in the Twenty-First Century.

The only ethnographic monograph on Brooklyn&rsquos Afro-Caribbean adolescent girls&rsquo identity mediations vis-à-vis popular culture, She&rsquos Mad Real anticipated the emerging subfield of Black girlhood studies as a critical departure point for addressing questions related to coming of age in the African Diaspora, Black feminism, and the delineation of raced/gendered/age-based/classed power.

LaBennett&rsquos volume, Racial Formation in the Twenty-First Century (co-edited with Daniel Martinez HoSang and Laura Pulido), brought together thirteen essays by leading scholars to engage critical race theory in the last twenty-five years. She has also contributed to a number of journals and volumes, including an article, &ldquo&lsquoBeyoncé and Her Husband&rsquo: Infidelity and Kinship in a Black Marriage," in a special issue of differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies.

Her OpEds and public commentary have appeared in platforms such as Ms. Magazine, The Guardian, and the Los Angeles Times. Elle Magazine ranked her course, &ldquoWomen in Hip Hop,&rdquo among the top ten in a list of &ldquoCollege Classes that Give Us Hope for the Next Generation.&rdquo

LaBennett is currently working on two manuscripts. The first book, Global Guyana: Women, Race and Resources in the Caribbean and Beyond, traces the entwined histories of people of African and Indian descent to reposition Guyana as constitutively interconnected with transnational gendered racializations. The book explores family, ethnicity, and race in Guyana and its diaspora in order to reimagine this presumably insignificant place as a cynosure that drives popular culture and ideas about sexuality, while reshaping the very topography that has come to be emblematic of the Caribbean region&mdashits shorelines and beaches. Her other project in progress, Daughters of the Diaspora: Reading, Writing, and Rhythm, considers the influence that genre-defying Black women artists located in global cities such as New York, Port of Spain, Cologne, and Amsterdam have on global South/North dialogues.

Previously, LaBennett was Associate Professor of Africana Studies and a Faculty Fellow with the Atkinson Center for Sustainability at Cornell University. She also conducted oral history research on art and culture in the Bronx with a focus on Bronx women's contributions to hip hop music in her capacity as Director of American Studies and Research Director of the Bronx African American History Project at Fordham University. LaBennett was born in Guyana and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
