A 3-day digital exhibition on the Grenada Revolution opens in Norton Hall tomorrow, Wednesday, 13 March and runs until Friday, 15 March.
The exhibition, organised by the Grenada Revolution Celebrations Committee (GRCC) as part of activities to mark the 40th Anniversary of the Revolution, runs from 11am to 7pm each day with a formal opening ceremony planned for 5pm on 13 March.
The GRCC recognises that the March 13th 1979 Revolution is part of Grenada’s history and ought to be commemorated and revisited.
The exhibition looks at the revolutionary years of March 1979 to October 1983, through online collections and personal archives and narratives, and touches on the Fédon Rebellion and the 1951 uprising. It will also look at initiatives begun during the revolutionary period, many of which are still in use today.
The general public is invited to bring memorabilia from the revolutionary period to display during the run of the exhibition, and to allow the items to be photographed for the Committee’s archives. The exhibition will be open every day from 11 am – 7 pm, and is suitable for schoolchildren, families, old-school music lovers and persons interested in that period of Grenada’s history.
Admission is free.
