SIR ALEXANDER BUSTAMANTE was born as William Alexander Clarke, to an Irish planter, and a mother of mixed Afro-European origins. He claimed that he took the name Bustamante to honour an Iberian Sea Captain who befriended him in his youth. He also claimed that his mother was a Taino Islander, rather than a mixed-race Jamaican Creole.

He was imprisoned for subversive activities in 1940. However, the anti-colonial effort resulted in the granting of universal suffrage to Jamaica. He was released from prison in 1942 and founded the Jamaican Labour Party, in 1943. Jamaica was granted independence in 1962 and Bustamante served as the independent country's first Prime Minister until 1967.

In 1969, Bustamante was proclaimed a 'National Hero of Jamaica', along with Norman Manley, the black liberationist Marcus Garvey, and two leaders of the 1865 Morant Bay rebellion, Paul Bogle, and George William Gordon. Sir Alexander Bustamante died on the 15th Anniversary of Jamaica's Independence.
