Titan Express & The African Bermuda Dispersion Cultural Tours is offering the Mary Prince Legacy Bus Tour this month.
A spokesperson said, “In recognition of Emancipation, Titan Express & The African Bermuda Dispersion Cultural Tours is offering in July, “The Mary Prince Legacy Bus Tour”. The tour highlights Mary Prince’s experiences and visits places where she was housed in Bermuda as an enslaved Black woman.
“Mary Prince was the first enslaved Black women to share her story of slavery throughout Britain’s Colonies, and she was the first Black woman and author to write about the brutalities of slavery and wrote truth to power.
“Her book is called ‘The History of Mary Prince, A West Indian Slave,’ and her story was given as a petition to Britain’s Parliament and led to the onset for Britain to start with the abolishment slavery throughout its colonies, including the enslaved Blacks in Bermuda who received Emancipation on August 1st, 1834. The Cup Match Holiday which is being held in August, on the first day is Emancipation Day and the second day is Mary Prince Day.
