Our projects include:
Barbados Beyond Boundaries (BBB) is a community-constructed digital space, mapping contributions of the vast experiences of people from Barbados and its diaspora. It is a project by The Barbados Museum & Historical Society in partnership with the National Museum of African American History & Culture | Smithsonian Institution.
The Enslaved Burial Ground at Newton
Newton Plantation was excavated in the 1970s and was the earliest and largest undisturbed plantation enslaved cemetery found in the New World. The Enslaved Burial Ground at Newton is the largest and earliest enslaved burial ground discovered in Barbados and the Western Hemisphere. Here lie the remains of several hundred enslaved men, women and children who toiled and suffered through brutal plantation slavery.
Centenarians of Barbados: Foundation Builders presents an informative and interactive space for all Barbadians which highlights the significant milestone of becoming a centenarian. This is particularly of interest to Barbadians everywhere as we are the longest-lived nationality within the Caribbean and the Western Hemisphere and the second longest-lived worldwide! This project is co-developed by the Barbados Government Information Service, the National Committee on Ageing and the Barbados Museum & Historical Society.
