From the Editor’s Mind to Yours

Welcome to Caribbean American Heritage Month

Happy June Massive,
I am not going to say too much in this message, except that we have an entire month in which to show our Caribbean colors and personality (this month called June) and we are fortunate that this is all happening in one of the “hottest” months of the year; when the weather is really awesome.  Whatever you do this month, ensure that you wear your Caribbean-NESS with pride and also educate someone who is not Caribbean about where YOU are from.
I went to an Ethiopian affair on last Thursday and the White lady complimented me on my attire (which was African).  When she heard my accent, she said, “Awesome that you’re from Jamaica.”  I smiled because she got THAT right.  She then said “I really LOVE the way you are wearing those Jamaican colors.  It is beautiful.”  I smiled and said thanks, and then later I realized that if I did not educate her then, she would forever make the same mistake so I went back over, smiled and said, “My outfit is made with Ghanaian fabric (Africa not Jamaica), but you know what, this Jamaican is really from Africa, so there is THAT.” She looked at her husband, and they both looked at me and said “WOW! Thanks so much for letting us know. You’re such a nice young lady.”  Let’s not the forget the lady who spoke to Dr. Bobby on the phone and told him that she loves Jamaica especially the place called St. Vincent.  Hmmmmmmmm #WTH 🙂

Peace and Blessings,

Hello Family,

I missed communicating with you in April and now we are in the middle of May.  I sincerely feel like I am slacking up but I am working on some really powerful things and I know that you also appreciated the break. I’m just getting back from vacation aka “An Adventure” and am feeling fresh, bright-eyed and ready!!!!
Let’s catch up:  We had the Women’s HerStory Month event on March 26 and also launched The Give Black Foundation.  It was an awesome sold-out event with stellar entertainment, an amazing fashion show and much more.  We raised enough money to ship and clear two barrels of books to Jamaica and we still have a few dollars more to put in the “kitty” for our trip to Ghana in November.  We are still fundraising for the Foundation and still hope to raise another $6000 by June 30.  Click HERE if you would like to make a donation and very many thanks to all our donors so far.

I was on a 3-week island trek from April 21 to May 12 and had the great fortune of presenting to about 50 young ladies at a conference in Bahamas (still waiting on the pictures from that to share with you).  While in Bahamas, I also attended the World relays which was totally awesome.  Big up to all those talented athletes.

I also experienced St. Thomas USVI through new eyes and participated in their 65th Carnival activities which was amaaaaaaaaaaaazing.  See some photos HERE and HERE.
While I was in Jamaica, I celebrated a new niece and also took part in volunteer activities for Read Across Jamaica (RAJ) representing my new nonprofit, The Give Black Foundation Inc. Click HERE to see some photos and be on the lookout for some videos of me and the Prime Minister of Jamaica reading to the children (not together, but in the same space). Big ups to Ja’Nice Wisdom and the RAJ family for always taking a week out of the yearto give back to children in my beloved Jamaica!!
I got back in the States on Friday and am back in the lab working on some powerful things…stay tuned for more but keep me in your prayers.
Scroll down to see some HOT events we are endorsing and promoting, and stay in touch with us via our Facebook page where we post photos and Happenings on the daily.

 BAD BREED  is another hilarious comedy from the prolific pen of award-winning playwright David Tulloch and produced by Jam Stage Productions.

BAD BREED is loads of fun and a belly full of laughter. The comedy is at best an intimately revealing and entertaining roller-coaster, featuring some intensely dramatic moments and elicits big laughs in its more comedic ones. BAD BREED offers a thought-provoking meditation on the struggles and sacrifices of single fatherhood, the cost of deceit, and the price of dignity and budding love.
Throw into the mix, themes like class and social cultures and you have a rollicking mix up and blender.
We see Wilfred James wanting to marry Jackie Lawson but he is hindered by his son because his son still
thinks that his late mother can’t be replaced. How the rest of it unravels will only blow your mind.
The complexities of family, truth, love and opposition are prime themes for the piece.
The production is also directed by Tulloch who has been chalking up platitudes and accolades for his
multi-faceted works in recent times.
The Cast: Maxwell “Bashy” Grant, Terri Salmon, Michael “Stringbean” Nicholson, Akeem Poyser and
Daneila “Teeta” Gordon.

So much has happened since we last connected at the end of March!  The first of which is that we did launch Season 4 of PEP Talk at #EveryWomanCan. We are waiting on the editors to get back to us with some finished material so we can share but we did interviews with Lady Flame, Reshada Pullen-Jireh and Tony of Sweet Home Jamaica.

The event itself was awesome and well attended with everyone visibly enjoy themselves.  Shout outs again to our performerStrykers Posse Reggae Band, J Pope, Tasha T and Lady Flame.  The highlight of the evening was that the painting done by Reshada (see article to the left) which was auctioned and now 2 of the 10 children I am fundraising for this year will have their annual school education taken care of. Many thanks again to our awesome sponsors, supporters and attendees.  ClickHEREto see the event photos and do remember that this annual event is held on the last Saturday in March, so start planning for next year’s event.

From April 22-25, I had the great opportunity to visit Atlanta and was hosted by Bomani Tyehimba ofAfrica for the Africans& Friends.  It was an amazing weekend and included us doing a LIVE PEP Talk Shoot regarding this year’s mission trip to Ghana! I also got to explore the City and have some fun as well.  I had such a joyous time visiting Ras Marvin who is the President of the Atlanta Division 421 of the UNIA-ACL and realized that his division needs help in terms of getting a better office space. Please look out for a Go Fund Me Campaign on that, and also clickHEREto learn more about the Collective Black People’s Movement which Ras Marvin also manages.

As we are into May, the month in which MOTHERS are celebrated, I want to remind  still cannot forget March, the month in which WOMEN were celebrated.  It was in that month that I got the opportunity to express heartfelt THANKS to everyone who was a part of#EveryWomanCan2016.  The event was awesome, and I’m not the only one who is saying that. I really appreciate all my sponsors (DSV Group, LLCSave WatarDenise DixonBertha CrossSatay IsraelAlex FlemmingsShaka WatsonCody CurryRead Across Jamaica, Umoja Kuumba, Balando DulstonBrenda Liddell, andBlack Child Development Institute-DC Metro) who did not hesitate to be a part of the event.

To the performers Jasmine PopeTasha Tee and Lady Flame, you ladies killed it and I was enjoying the performances so much that I did not even want to stop to take photos or videos. People are still talking about you so please understand that YOU were the real stars on Saturdays and I am blessed to know you so I can share you with others.

The event was the first FUNdraiser for my Annual Mission Trip to Ghana, West Africa, and I want to express very many thanks to artist Reshada Pullen-Jireh for creating such a beautiful painting which was bidded on and won by Ron Munia, who also has sponsored children from Akoma International Academy (AIA) before.  See how the world turns?  The proceeds raised from the sale of the painting will go towards sponsoring 2 children who attend AIA for the 2016-2017 school term.  To RSVP for the Annual Birthday FUNdraiser and/or donate towards a child’s annual education, clickHERE.

Please check out the photos from Shaka HERE, stay connected to each other and email me under separate cover so we can continue to work together.

Welcome to the Holidays.  We are excited to report that we returned from Ghana, West Africa at the end of November and have since had an Appreciation Party on December 5 for all our donors and supporters. Very many thanks to all who attended the party and celebrated the beginning of the Holidays with us.  It was an awesome party!   The trip to Ghana this year was my best yet, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that I really feel like I belong there (now), plus the group I traveled with has the most incredible energy and it was a joy to be on tour with such lovely people.  The real icing on the cake for me was the actual volunteer work that I did while there (this time) and interacting with the many children from 4 schools, and various individuals I met while I was there.  From the donations I received at my Birthday Fundraiser, we visited the Trinity Home Academy and gave $200US to the school.  We visited BenuVillage and gave $200US to the school.  We visited our host school, Akoma International Academy and gave $3600 in sponsorships for a total of 13 children, spent a considerable time with the students and faculty and also donated $250 for the revamping of a new website.  While we were in Ghana, we launched #EveryGirlCan Ghana and trained 3 interns who can now also facilitate the program even when we are not physically there in Ghana.  Ten young ladies who attend Akoma International Academy were the first on the continent of Africa to go through the curriculum and our goal is to have at least 100 young ladies trained by 2017.  Click HERE to see the EGC album and stay tuned for more from our trip to Ghana.


The children sponsored were:  Kingsford Donkoh, Joyce Gyekye, Grace Essibir, Abigail Sagoe, Enoch Gyekye, Nicholas Waters, Tina Thompson, Harriett Inkoom, Monica Koomsom, Francesca Arthur, Christina Nyan, and Simon Cobbinah.
