This remarkable documentary outlines the historic events that saw the liberation of a people and the steps they take to seek out their rightful place in the world through education. What started out as an ambitious dream of one scholar for the colonies, resulted in the
establishment of an institution that has, and continues to, educate generations of Bermudians. Regardless of race, class, gender or religion, The Berkeley Institute ushers in the eventual desegregation of education in Bermuda. Through historical documents and eyewitness accounts this documentary weaves together the relentless journey of the twelve founding fathers, alumni and the wider community in their pursuit of knowledge.
