Since 1985, in Trinidad and Tobago, August 1st has been observed as Emancipation Day: a public holiday to celebrate the abolishment of slavery
Mosaic Monday #141: Short and Sweet
August in T&T, begins with celebration of freedom; freedom from the chains of chattel awareness, freedom to claim the dignity and status of all mankind - human.
With drum songs and dancing feet, flambeau and Canboulay flames lighting the paths of future days.
A public festival of pre Covid19 eras halts today to the tune of Lockdown season and curfew hours. The feasting and festivity is tamed to family stay home numbers.
