On Tuesday, January 10, 1967 Bahamians finally realized majority rule in the country - the right of one man, one vote – and fifty years later on the same date, thousands of Bahamians marched again for their rights.
The grand entrance of honourees at the Majority Rule Assembly at Central Abaco Primary School (CAPS) on Jan. 8 signified a historic moment in time as the unsung heroes of Abaco were celebrated for their contributions. The theme: "A Tribute to Majority Rule: The Unsung Heroes of Abaco."
Last month, Majority Rule Day was marked by a special event at Grand Cay All Age School. The observation of the day was highlighted with a special assembly to inform and educate the students, teachers and the community about the history that caused this day to be prominent. Principal Arnald Cooper emphasized the importance and necessity for everyone to know where we came from in order to understand where we are going.
