  • Background

    In Afro-Carribbean cultures a duppy is a menacing ghost or spirit. Popularized by the Bob Marley song a duppy conqueror essentially is a ghostbuster. In Jamaican folklore it connotes—and conjures—superhero powers. Our Uncle Buntin {a.k.a. Dad's brother Ansel} drew this wine’s “cover art” circa 1975. We were too small then to grasp its meanings. It is a rendering of his haunted dreams, a summoning, a call to action: Let us find our inner superheroes that we may face down our demons, and in so doing vanquish them.
