Highlights

"Mary Prince was the first enslaved black woman to give her narrative and publish her autobiography about the brutality of slavery, entitled ‘The History of Mary Prince’, which was published in 1831 and considered to be extremely significant because it was “instrumental in helping to dismantle slavery throughout The British Empire & its Overseas Territories, including Bermuda and the Caribbean.” In 2012 she was inducted as a Bermuda National Hero."
