African Heritage Museum hosting lecture on Demerara Revolt

The Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport through the Museum of African Heritage is hosting a lecture on the 1823 Demerara revolt today.

The Committee hopes that events such as these will bring recognition to the museum and the African culture it represents. For more information on the function the public is advised to call Christobel Hughes at 226-1415.
