Emancipation day in Jamaica.Picture the scene: It is the night of July
31, 1838. Queen Victoria had sent out a royal decree declaring that as
of midnight August 1, 1838 all slaves in her kingdom are free people.
That declaration also applies to all slaves on vessels at sea.
This
is their last night as slaves. They all want to experience freedom from
the moment it begins. Thousands of slaves have gathered in town centers
and in special church meetings.
