ST. CROSS – In its first large-scale activity since the pandemic, the Grove Place Action Committee is preparing to hold its annual Freedom Day celebration to commemorate the life and legacy of David Hamilton Jackson.
The day is celebrated annually on November 1, a local holiday, and is also known as D. Hamilton Jackson Day. . Raymond Williams, event coordinator, said the festivities will begin with a 1 p.m. ceremony at Estate Grove Place park named in Jackson’s honor. In 2020 the celebration was moved to a pre-recorded virtual event and last year it was a limited invitation event at Government House which was broadcast via radio and social media platforms.
