Members of the public are being encouraged to attend the National Heroes Thanksgiving Service and Wreath-laying Ceremony at the grave of the Right Excellent Samuel Jackman Prescod, on Wednesday, April 27, at the St. Mary’s Anglican Church, beginning at noon.

Barbados has observed National Heroes Day since April 28, 1998. The 10 heroes are the Right Excellent: Bussa, Sarah Ann Gill, Samuel Jackman Prescod, Charles Duncan O’Neal, Clement Osbourne Payne, Sir Hugh Springer, Errol Walton Barrow, Sir Frank Leslie Walcott and Sir Garfield St. Auburn Sobers.

This year, however, the life of the Right Excellent Samuel Jackman Prescod is being celebrated for his tireless struggle to improve the lives of the Free Coloured people of Barbados and liberate our enslaved ancestors.
