Dr C.A. Smith Commemorative Celebration

June 6, 2019

On Sunday [June 9], an event will take place in order to honour Dr. C.A. Smith and his contributions to the island.

The event poster says, “Dr. C.A. Smith aka Pop Pop. Lived a life full of heart & integrity. His tenacity in a segregated Bermuda helped pave the way for other black doctors on island.

“After overcoming insurmountable obstacles, he opened his own practice in the building proudly unveiled today as Dr. C.A. Smith Court! He and his beloved horse Prince could often be seen racing off to minister to his patients on Bermuda’s Street. Outside of tending to his patients, he was a founding member of Alpha Phi Alpha, a ring doctor for local boxing matches and an entrepreneur. Ever interesting, always loved.”
