Discussion on Tucker’s Town history

The historical displacement of families from Tucker's Town is set to be the focus of a special panel discussion at the Bermuda College.

The discussion, entitled “The Forceful Displacement of Tucker's Town Residents: A Historical Perspective”, will focus on the emotive issue. Panellists will include social commentator LeYoni Junos, representatives from the Tucker's Town Historical Society and the descendants of three displaced families; Eugene Stovell, Keith DuBois and Catherine Joy Smith.

A statement by Bermuda College stated: “All will review the facts and recount the experiences behind the dislodgment of both black and white families from the prime real estate area of Tucker's Town, back in the 1920s. Cordell Riley will facilitate the discussion.”

The discussion is scheduled to take place on May 31, starting at 6.30pm in the North Hall Lecture Theatre at Bermuda College.
