Each year, the island is engulfed in a period of celebrations, contemplation and reflection as the nation commemorates the anniversaries of emancipation from slavery and its political independence. In commemorating these major milestones in the nation’s history, recognition is given to the various areas of our culture. The content and context of the activities this year will not only commemorate our historic movement into Emancipation and Independence, but will also spur a sense of belonging to the nation and its successes. The celebrations are diverse, appealing and attractive to Jamaicans at home and abroad, as well as visitors to the island.
