No new heroes


Share post:

THERE ARE NO new names to be added to the National Heroes roster.
But in making that announcement, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley said the list was by no means “exhaustive”.
Speaking at the launch of this year’s Season of Emancipation, Lashley said he had heard the calls “in between” that the list, which now stands at ten should be expanded, but there was no clamour for it.
“We will listen to those calls and evolve a structured framework upon which, perhaps, that can be looked at and discussed… We should always feel as a nation, that we’ll always have new heroes. I don’t believe that the list of National Heroes is a closed list,” Lashley said, adding that it will continue to evolve.
Barbados celebrates Heroes Day on April 28. It is one of the events in the Season of Emancipation.  (YB)
