Barrow Freedom Fighter

"What does it profit a man to be Prime Minister of Barbados or of the West Indies? What does it mean? It means nothing
if you lose your soul and achieve those objectives."
- Right Excellent Errol Walton Barrow

The Errol Barrow Docudrama, BARROW: FREEDOM FIGHTER, is a passionate story about the courage of one man
who relentlessly preached a gospel of economic self reliance and self respect to the people of his native country
Barbados and beyond. He defied the status quo, confronted racism and classicism, fought colonial oppression and
selflessly led his people to political and economic freedom. A hero lives for the other...that was The Right Excellent Errol
Walton Barrow, Father of Independence, Reformer, National Hero of Barbados.
