After all, I made sure I will not leave out Black History Month. Hey, I am black after all! So there’s a twist for Ellis In Barbados Blog black history month blog post. Instead of focusing on America’s Black History this year, I brought it home right here, making it related to my fellow citizens of Barbados!
We in Barbados have so many scholars around the globe, from Music Artists, Global Entrepreneurs, Sportsmans and several Leaders just to mention a few.
So here are 5 Inspiring Barbadians History Quotes:

“What I wish to speak to you about very briefly here this evening is about you. About yourself.

A Glimpse Of ‘Speightstown’s Memories’
Today’s visit was an “unofficial plan”, but luckily I managed to visit ‘Arlington House – Museum’. It was a spectacular history of Barbados I discovered what I didn’t know before.
“Arlington House was constructed in the early 18th century and is a classic example of a “Single” house.
I was privileged to capture some photos and video(s) of both the “Speightstown Memories” room and the “Wharf Memories” room.
