“Virgin Islanders, a quiet and humble people should not be allowed to rule themselves for one hundred years and when so, should be done under white rule." Naval Governor Sumner Ely Wetmore Kittelle of the newly created Virgin Islands of the United States in 1922.
Virgin Islanders have not thoroughly exercised their rights as stipulated by the “Treaties & Resolutions” to accomplishing Self-Determination/Decolonization. A group of “grass roots” Virgin Islanders have come together and created "A People's Historical Journey To Self-Determination & Decolonization” to go beyond the Centennial activities of 2017. This journey will explore the historical events that had significant impact on Self-Determination of the Virgin Islands prior to and after the transfer. Our goal is to bring an end to the 100 years of white government rule of the People of the Virgin Islands through and by the establishment of a Political Status and Constitution of the Virgin Islands by 2021.
