The Eric Williams Heritage is of worldwide significance since it documents the life and times of Dr. Eric Williams, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago international statesman and esteemed scholar, during the period 1956-1981.
Williams led Trinidad and Tobago from colonialism into a short-lived West Indies Federation, then Independence in 1962 and finally to the status of Republic in 1976.
Trinidad and Tobago’s achievement, guided by Dr. Williams, is therefore an excellent case-study of the decolonization movement of the 1950's and 1960's and of the success of a multi-ethnic, multi-religious fledgling society’s entrance into the world family of nations.
