Educator Questions 1768 Slave Rebellion Narrative


An educator and psychosocial expert has raised questions about the narrative on the 1768 slave rebellion.

Dr. Claris Barnes says it is right to ask questions about the authenticity of the uprising that was squashed by the slave owners on St. Patrick's Day 250 years ago.

Dr. Barnes was speaking on the radio series Conspiring Freedom which begins on Thursday at 4:40PM. The six part series has been developed by Radio Montserrat and Dr. Barnes to mark the 250th anniversary of the slave rebellion.

St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated on March 17th, and is a public holiday.
