Farewell Harry

“Sad to say I’m on my way

Won’t be back for many a day

My heart is down

My head is turning around

I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town” (“Jamaica Farewell” by Harry Belafonte)

As Harry bid his farewell on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 at the age of 96. He did not just “leave a little girl in Kingston town,” but rather, he left behind many faces with smiles turned upside down.

Their responses paint a picture of sadness, loneliness, depression, and loss.

Museums and the exhibitions they host offer an avenue for reflecting and connecting with elements of the past. However, it is often the interactive sections of the exhibitions that really stimulate thought and reflection. This is evident in the “Surviving COVID-19” exhibition where visitors often grow emotional in their recollection of the pandemic.
