Jamaican Heroes and Heroine
How are our national heroes and heroine remembered?
Answer: Oct-06-2008 by Wellesley Gayle
Thanks for the question.
These, our seven national heroes (and heroine) of Jamaica has made an indelible mark on the history and culture of our beautiful island.
These gallant individuals have done some of what would have been almost impossible by the average person back then, in their quest to change the social and political constructs.
They challenged the institutions of slavery, colonialism and dependency, thereby changing the course of our history.
Some shed their bloods and life because of the vision they shared for us.
How can we repay that? We will never be able to but I think we have done some work to ensure their work and legacy lives on.
- The construction of Schools and other institutions in their (individual) names.
- The writing of books.
- The enactment of statues around the country.
- Through poetry and music,
- Collectibles, including bank notes
- Monuments and Memorials
- National Ceremonies,
- And much more.
