In honour of Africa
PAN-AFRICANISTS across the world were on heightened awareness yesterday as month-long celebrations to mark African Awareness Month got under way.
It was no different here in Barbados, as representatives from the various groups, which form the Pan-African Coalition of Organisations, gathered on Browne’s Beach, St Michael, to pay homage to those who never made it all the way during the transatlantic slave trade, and all the other ancestors at a ceremony where the highlight was the “laying” of a wreath in the sea and flowers released into the water.
