MEMBERS OF THE Pan African movement today called on the Barbados Government to add two more names to the list of ten National Heroes – Israel Lovell and Nanny Grigg.

Spokesman for the Pan African Coalition of Organisations David Denny said Lovell should be honoured for his role in the 1937 social upheaval and Gregg for hers in the earlier Bussa Rebellion.

Members of the coalition, their friends and relatives were celebrating a family day at the beach today as Barbados celebrated National Heroes Day.  (TY)
