“I am delighted that this year’s awards ceremony is dedicated to Marcus Garvey. His Black Star Line Steamship Corporation was established to facilitate travel and trade among Africans. There are 300 million Africans in the Diaspora and 800 million on the continent of Africa. We need to know more about each other. The best way is through travel.”
Headlining the Africana Cultural Performance Extravaganza is Bob Marley’s granddaughter Donisha.
She is a spoken word artist and she will share some of her poetry with us. On that Thursday, we will have an “Evening with Donisha” where she presents her travel documentary: “Rasta: A Soul’s Journey.” Read More
Also headlining the Africana Extravaganza is Linda Antognini, an artist who will debut “Project Tupac”, a collection of paintings that she did after listening to some of his songs hundreds of times. Through her paintings, she connects with each subject designing every detail with the subject in mind. A popular painting in her Project Tupac is “Dear Mama”. Read More
