In 1861. sixty four Liberated Africans on Tortola petitioned to Queen Victoria for help to repair the decaying chapel on their settlement. How had the Church of England become the Church of the Africans? Weres these Africans settled on the small colony of the Virgin Islands merely as a dependent people or were they defining their liberation by holding the British accountable for reparations? What are the untold events that led them down this road in history? Where are the Liberated Africans now in public memory? These are some of the difficult questions raised by 'Can These Stones Talk?' as it inserts the present into a largely forgotten and often misrepresented chapter of history.
