Speak the Speech
Speak the Speech is a new Bahamian historical work created by our Artistic Director, Philip A. Burrows and compiled by our Festival Director Nicolette Bethel. Research for this work comes mostly from Bethel and her colleagues at the College of The Bahamas like Stephen Aranha, Christopher Curry, Clifford Rahming and Michael Stevenson. Other research assistance was provided by Reva Cartwright-Carroll, Dr. Gail Saunders and Philip A. Burrows. The production consists of speeches and correspondences beginning with the 1492 landfall to Bahamian Independence.
