Listen to Voices: Pauline Bushell

Pauline Louise Bushell Pauline Louise Bushell was born in 1941 in Panama and has deep roots in the Caribbean: her paternal grandfather was from Trinidad, her paternal grandmother was from Barbados, her maternal grandmother was from Jamaica, and one of Pauline's maternal uncles was Lord Cobra, an extremely popular calypso singer and bandleader. Though she has spent most of her life working in the baker's shop she inherited from her mother, music has always been important to her; she is a song leader at church and has even appeared on several recordings. Pauline is proud to be a black and believes that the Negro race is something special in the world. She has six children, twenty-eight grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
