The first Monday of August, much of the English speaking Caribbean honors Emancipation Day. It is a celebration not only of the end of the slave trade and slave practices in the region, but moreover, of the amalgamated hybrid culture that has grown to be singularly and specifically, Caribbean.
Represented by cultural activites including dance, song, story telling, plays and often Carnival festivities, we honor our ongoing growth as a People who have survived a system of toil and death, who continue to learn from history, uplift our Own and celebrate Freedom.
Happy Emancipation Day!

"Carry away my dead leaves,
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters,
Sink my pains and complains,
Let the river take them, River drown them." Ibeyi

Focus. Reach.
Protect your He(art).

I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, 
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. 
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear 
I rise 
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear 
I rise - Ancestor Maya Angelou
