Honoring ‘National Heroes’ of Barbados
FROM NEXT WEEK, several of Barbados’ National Heroes will be Back From the Past, thanks to a video series conceptualised by the social media team of the Barbados Government Information Service (BGIS).
Produced by acting senior information officer, Kathyann Husbands, and web content manager (Ag.), Esther Jones, the five-part series was also directed by Jones and filmed by BGIS staff members Mikul Elcock, Jamal Hall and Jamal Weekes.
According to Jones, the series was created to give the public a glimpse into the time periods in which the selected National Heroes lived. She continued: “We wanted to bring a fresh approach to how these distinguished persons are remembered and celebrated. We focused on the early Heroes, namely the Right Excellent Bussa, Sarah Ann Gill, Charles Duncan O’Neal, Samuel Jackman Prescod and Clement Payne, who will all be plucked from history and brought into the present day to be interviewed by veteran journalist, Tony Cave.”
