Who Is A Bahamian?

Sabrina Lightbourn, a Bahamian born photographer, took 100 black and white photos of Bahamian faces - 20 of them adorn public buildings in downtown Nassau - to illustrate the diverse, multi-cultural people who make up the residents of the Bahamas.

The photographer said, “There is a lot of intolerance for people who don’t look and sound the way we think a traditional Bahamian should look and sound. We might look different and we might sound different but we are all Bahamian.”

Hmmm...sounds like a few Americans might want to take a lesson from this.
