Independence Silver Jubilee - Toronto

In commemoration of the 25th year anniversary of Independence the Consulate General of Antigua and Barbuda will present a cultural and historical exhibition in Toronto, Canada. Tamara Huggins, a Barbudan who is chairing the organising committee, is looking for artifacts, photographs, memorabilia and other items that will best encapsulate the history and spirit of Antigua and Barbuda in arts and culture, politics, economics, sports, and other fields. The exhibition will chronicle Antigua and Barbuda's heritage from Emancipation, to Independence, to the Antigua and Barbuda of the twenty-first century.

Tamara Huggins says that the event will allow Antiguans and Barbudans overseas to share in the experiences of their heritage and enable people from other communities to learn that we are more than two islands of sun and sand, but have a rich history, profound stories, and a promising future. For more information about the event or to provide assistance, information, or items please contact Tamara Huggins at the Consulate General in Toronto by This email address is being protected from spambots.

We like this...

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
