The Blackspace & Jamaica’s 60 Years of Freedom

“60 Years of Freedom?”

60 years of freedom,

60 years hard won,

60 years of work, with plenty to be done.

Down went the Union Jack, now the black, green and gold glows proudly in the sun.

60 years of freedom,

60 years hard won,

60 years of reflection on the work still to be done.

Independence we have won but the work has just begun,

Emancipate the youths so that slavery will not live on.

60 years of freedom,

60 years hard won,
