Event description
From World War 2 RAF bomber crew, to lawyer, to politician, to leading Barbados to Independence ,the amazing true story of Errol Barrow

About this event

This is an online screening plus Q&A with the director and producer (originally scheduled for 29 August)

Narrated by former United States Attorney General Eric Holder whose father is from Barbados, the Errol Barrow docudrama, BARROW: FREEDOM FIGHTER tells the story of The Right Excellent Errol Walton Barrow who successfully led Barbados to independence in 1966 after more than 300 years as a British colony. BARROW: FREEDOM FIGHTER is a passionate story about the courage of one man who relentlessly preached a gospel of economic self-reliance and self-respect to the people of his native country Barbados and beyond. He defied the status quo, confronted racism and classicism, fought colonial oppression and selflessly led his people to political and economic freedom.
