Bussa Emancipation Monument: (also recorded as Busso or Bussoe) was created by Karl Broodhagen, a Barbadian sculpture in 1985, and is erected at the Haggatt Hall Roundabout in St. Michael, Barbados. The story goes; Bussa was brought from Africa to Barbados as a slave, and was killed in 1816 in a slave rebellion that he led at the Bayley's Plantation. The Bussa Emancipation Statue symbolizes the "Breaking Of Chains". While slavery in Barbados was abolished in 1834, there is still a national holiday “Emancipation Day”, which is widely observed on the first of August every year.
