Celebrating Bermuda’s National Heroes
The last day of Carnival in Bermuda coincides with Bermuda's National Heroes Day holiday, which honors Bermudians who are “admired and acknowledged for their courage, outstanding achievements and noble qualities.” National Heroes include Gladys Carlyon de Courcy Morrell, a leader of the 30-year campaign for women’s voting rights in Bermuda, beginning in the 1920s, and Sir Edward Trenton Richards, one of a small group of visionaries who laid the foundations for the diverse, inclusive Bermuda of today.
