About Emancipation Day
The Emancipation Bill was presented in Parliament by Thomas Buxton in 1833 and the Act came into effect on August 1, 1834. On that day it seemed as if history had been created to slaves throughout the West Indies. They would no longer be slaves, but emancipated - free to do as they pleased. On August 1, 1985, Trinidad and Tobago became the first country in the world to declare a national holiday to commemorate the abolition of slavery. In the older islands of Jamaica and Barbados, Emancipation was much more central and even traumatic. is an online calendar website designed to organize special occasions like Emancipation Day.
