Telling Bermuda’s story

This year's Historical Heartbeats lecture series will begin on Saturday and will feature guest speakers sharing stories about Bermudians who have contributed to society, but whose stories are perhaps not widely known.

Hosted by the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs, guest lecturers include Meredith Ebbin, Andrew Bermingham, Ronald Lightbourne and Lisabet Outerbridge.

Andrew Bermingham will discuss war veteran Fred Dolan, whose story is featured at the Bermuda Historical Society. Lisabet Outerbridge will share stories about her grandfather Stuart Outerbridge, who caused a furore when he married African-American singer Royce Wallace in segregated Bermuda; Meredith Ebbin will speak about the Seaton family — Ruth Seaton James and Judge Earl Seaton; and Ronald Lightbourne will discuss pianist Joseph Richards.

The Bold, Beautiful Bermudians Lecture and Tea will be held at the Grotto Bay Hotel and tickets are $10 in advance and available from the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs. For more information contact Folklife Officer Dr Kim Dismont Robinson on 292-1681 or kdrobinson@gov.bm
