The annual events commemorating Bermuda’s emancipation recognises the contributions made by Bermudians of African descent as well as those who struggled against the injustices of slavery and its aftermath. The Department of Community and Cultural Affairs partners with organizations throughout the community such as the Bermuda Friendly Societies to create events that raise awareness of these accomplishments. Events include dramatic presentations, lectures and festivals.
