Oh, I'm so sorry for the misunderstanding, Trevor. If the money is coming from the ArSees then I absolutely agree that it is a niggardly sum (no offense intended) and they can well afford more.
Have you considered applying to the Spanish and Portuguese governments? They have recently been very enthusiastic about making reparations to the joos they expelled (by giving them passports) and I see no reason why they should not want to fund the descendants of the slaves they shipped west, especially those in catholic universities.
If you would like any help approaching them, just let me know. I do not speak their language, but have found that speaking LOUDLY
, s l o w l y, and clearly usually suffices.
All the very best, dear,
