Historians Ambassador Robert Morris and Morris Greenidge are leading the march, an interactive guided tour where patrons will journey through time, visiting some well-known locations in and around Bridgetown that played a pivotal role in the development of the trade union movement as it fought for the rights of Barbadian workers.
