Several activities for Sam Sharpe Flames of Freedom ceremony
Minister of state in the Office of the Prime Minister (West) Homer Davis has announced a series of events for the upcoming Sam Sharpe Flames of Freedom ceremony, slated for Tulloch Castle in Kensington, St James, on December 27.
These include a torch run and a celebratory concert, the state minister pointed out.
Davis, who was speaking at the second Sam Sharpe Flames of Freedom Lecture at the Montego Bay Cultural Centre on December 14, extended an open invitation to all Montegonians to attend the free day-and-night event, being held to honour the legacy of the national hero.
“We will have the Flames of Freedom Torch Run, which will start in Catadupa Square at 9:00 am and end in Tulloch Castle up in Kensington,” the state minister said.
“The runners will journey into Montego Bay at Sam Sharpe Square where they will be handing over the torch symbolically to the mayor, who will, in turn, return the torch. The runners will then run to the Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College [in Granville] and from there they journey into Kensington,” he added.
The day will culminate with a celebratory concert at Kensington, commencing at 8:00 pm.
Davis promised an engaging programme featuring cultural, religious, and reggae segments.
