Biography (note)
  • The West Indies National Council (WINC), formerly West Indian National Emergency Committee was founded in June 1940 by Wilfred Adolphus Domingo. Its broad objective was to lend support to the British West Indian territories' efforts to gain "self determination, self government" and prevent United States intervention in the islands' democratic processes. The WINC directorate included W.A. Domingo, Hope R. Stevens, Charles Petioni, H.P. Osborne, Richard B. Moore, Arthur King, Ivy Bailey Essien and Amy Ashwood Garvey. Because of their nationalist ideologies, association with radical or liberal organizations and their anti-colonialist political position, the FBI closely scrutinized the WINC for their alleged "subversive activities in the West Indies."
