1914. She knew something about prejudice
and exclusion! Treating people the way you
wanted to be treated was passed on to us.”
When Sandra was seven, she and her fam-
ily moved to the US and, as she says, “That’s
when the colour issue was obvious to me.
Virginia was my awakening to segregation.
In St. George’s I felt we were different but we
were the same.”
Sandra would stay in the US just two years.
Her parents divorced, and Loucil took her
daughters back to Bermuda to live with her
parents in Southampton. But in those two
years Bermuda, in Sandra’s eyes, had irrevoca-
bly changed. “We left on a ship. We came back
on a plane. The train had gone. The cedars had
gone. And there were cars and trucks.”
Perhaps the dislocation Sandra felt upon
leaving St. George’s at such a young age and
then returning to a quite different Bermuda
explains why the Old Town of her childhood
is so much part of her identity and why she
is able to capture so vividly in her writings its
sights and sounds and flavours. As for her fam-
ily members long gone, fortunately for us, they
still live on in the stories and memories Sandra
has recorded in her books and articles.
