Barbados Culture Minister receives Reparations Report
Barbados has made another step towards the goal of obtaining regional reparations.
This step comes as members of the island’s Reparations Task Force recently presented Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth, Stephen Lashley, with an official report on arguments in support of reparations, in his Ministry’s Conference Room at Sky Mall.
After receiving the document, Mr. Lashley noted that he was very pleased to see the work conducted by the Task Force, which was established in 2012.
He noted that the Reparations Project was not only conceptualised to secure monetary payment, but also to form part of a “multi-faceted campaign designed to sensitise the Barbadian public on the historical and contemporary issues that inform an understanding of the meaning of reparations”.
