On August 10th, history will be re-created in a sense when the National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago formally launches its Refurbishment Programme for the facilities at Nelson Island.
The island, home to indentured servants and an incarceration site for participants of the 1970 Black Power Revolution, resonates with the energies and memories of those who occupied it. In fact, all of the buildings on Nelson Island were built by enslaved Africans.
A major refurbishment project of the facilities is now being undertaken by the National Trust, and the Idakeda Group will be an integral aspect of this formal launch.
