Emancipation Statue – A TOURIST IN THE CARIBBEAN

Emancipation Statue

The Emancipation Statue made of bronze is a public sculpture symbolizing the ‘breaking of the chains’ of slavery and emancipation in the British West Indies.  Situated at the Haggat Hall in St. Michael round-a-bout about three miles east of Bridgetown, lies this impressive statue that is called “Bussa statue’, named after the slave who helped inspire a revolt against slavery some 200 years ago.  The statue depicting a slave with his raised hands, broken chains hanging from each wrist, evoke both contempt and victory for those who commemorate the emancipation of slavery in 1834. It is a very powerful statue, very symbolic and a beautiful historical attraction.
