On Friday, September 22, 2023, a group of Jamaican storyteller and Special Guest, Dr. Julius Garvey, son of Pan African icon, Marcus Mosiah Garvey, gathered in New York City to celebrate Jamaica's rich heritage. The event was co-produced by a consortium of authors and the American Foundation for the University of the West Indies (AFUWI). Whos Who from the Caribbean community was in attendance to include but not limited to Sheryn Hylton Parker, Christine Reynolds, Hon. Monte Alexander, Mrs. Constance Garvey, wife of Dr. Julius Garvey. My Social Media friends whom I never met, longtime friends, schoolmates, theatre friends, family, came out to celebrate. Too risky to remember the names here. You know who you are. Thank you very much for your presence.
Thanks to all the storytellers who dropped everything to share their talents: Faith P. Nelson, Dawn Forrester Price, Lynda R. Edwards, Lorel G. Morrison, Burnett Coburn, Dale Mahfood (who supported us in the spirit of one love).
Award Winning Author, educator, and artivist.
