Carlton Duncan: An Autobiography
This is a triumphant story about a barefooted boy, Carlton Duncan, who was born and brought up in poverty in Denham Town, Kingston, Jamaica in the early 1940s. This same boy, against all odds, would one day rise to become Britain's first black Headmaster of a Secondary school; a sensational appointment, which absorbed the attention of the British media for several months. From the time of his first appointment in April 1982 till his early retirement in March 1999, there was never a dull moment in his career. Racism, marital disasters and family rejections are just some of the difficulties he encountered on his journey. And yet, somehow against so much hardship Duncan succeed where no one else had. This is his extraordinary story.
