Beyond the Spotlight is  brand new initiative of AC Global Voices. The purpose of this section is to uncover the whereabouts of past African Caribbean  sporting figures to find out where they are now, as well as unearthing the positive works that current African Caribbean sporting figures are involved  in behind the scenes.

Initially this was going to be a separate blog, but I decided to merge this with AC Global Voices at it fits in with the overall concept of the platform.
