Today I'm blogging to tell you about my movie, hence the title "My Movie."
The actual title of my movie is "The 1763" Rebellion based of the actual tale of a former slave leading a rebellion in Guyana.
Cuffy, or Kofi (died in 1763), was an Akan person who was captured in his native West Africa and sold into slavery to work in the plantations of the Dutch colony of Berbice in present-day Guyana. He became famous because in 1763 he led a revolt of more than 2,500 slaves against the colony regime. When he lost Cuffy killed himself.
The anniversary of the Cuffy slave rebellion, February 23, has been Republic Day in Guyana since 1970. Cuffy is commemorated in the 1763 Monument in the Square of the Revolution in the capital Georgetown.
The monument, coincidentally, is the picture I used a my movie background.
