Black Music Month
by the President of United States for Black Music Month
Black Music Month, we recognize the outstanding contributions that
African-American singers, composers, and musicians have made to
our country, and we express our appreciation for the extraordinary
music that has enriched our nation.
The music of
African-American musicians has helped shape our national character
and become an important part of our musical heritage. Often
born out of great pain and strong faith, that music has helped
African Americans endure tremendous suffering and overcome
injustice with courage, faith, and hope. By speaking to the
human experience and expressing heartfelt emotion,
African-American artists have inspired people across the
generations in America and around the world with their vision and
This month is an
opportunity to honor the men and women who have created some of
the best America has ever produced...We remember so many wonderful
artists and celebrate the achievements of black musicians whose
work reflects the diversity of our citizens and lists the human
One woman who I
admire and who I would like to acknowledge this Black Music month
is Ms. Suzanne de Passe because she has done a lot for Black
Music, she (1) developed artists and music that made a major impact in the
history of music, and (2) I would like to
celebrate her during this Caribbean Heritage Month because I've
come to learn she is of
Passe was an executive at Motown Records during the Motown Era
in the 1970s, and who was hired by the owner of Motown Records
Barry Gordy. Ms de Passe is responsible for signing, coaching and
developing Motown's most popular acts of the 70s. This successful company (Motown)
that Ms. de Passe was a
part of, packaged the intellectual and creative talent of young
minds and defined black music for the époque. At Motown
Ms. de Passe and the entire Motown team signed contracts, really
created personalities and made wonderful music and stars such as
Smokey Robinson, the Miracles, the Supremes (Diana Ross), The
Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and
many, many other popular groups that turned out hits after
hits. Ms. de Passe was part of a legendary music company
"Motown" which was a successful black-owned business
and the sound that came out of the Motown camp called the
"Motown Sound" have become legendary in the music
Motown Ms. de Passe co-wrote and produced television specials such
as: "Lady Sings the Blues", "TCB" and "G.I.T
on Broadway", as well as "Motown 25". In
recent years, Ms. de Passe acquired Motown Productions from Berry
Gordy and renamed it de Passe Entertainment, and her company has
since produced television shows and feature films such as Class
Act, Sister-Sister, Smart Guy and "It's Showtime at the
Apollo. Her company has also produced the miniseries
"The Jacksons: An American Dream, "The Temptations and
the Motown 45 special in 2004. This weekend on Saturday the
23rd, the Caribbean Heritage Organization of Los Angeles
will honor and pay tribute to Ms. de Pass for her
accomplishments. This event is co-sponsored by the Institute
of Caribbean Studies.
we continue Celebrating National Caribbean-American Heritage Month (June) -
"During Caribbean-American Heritage
Month, we celebrate the great contributions of
Caribbean-Americans to the fabric of our Nation, and we pay
tribute to the common culture and bonds of friendship that unite
the United States and the Caribbean countries" George W. Bush
On Tuesday the
Conference on the Caribbean - A 20/20 Vision kicked off.
This Conference is the result of a series of meetings between
officials from both the US and CARICOM (Caribbean Community and
Common Market). The main purpose for this conference was
to (1) strengthen the existing relationship between the United
States and the Caribbean Community, (2) to develop a vision of
the future relationship between the two, and (3) to focus on a
way to forward to achieving the various developmental objectives
for the Caribbean.
from this conference the Caribbean Community hoped to strengthen
its relationship with the United States at all political levels
and to further improve its relations with the Caribbean Diaspora
in the US to encourage the Diaspora and friends of the Caribbean
to support regional development.
these past few days several important forums and sessions took
place on several different issues. Such as (1)
Caribbean Diaspora in Perspective, (2) Challenges and
Opportunities for the Caribbean-US Diaspora, (3) Addressing
Quality and Equity in Social Development, and even on (4) Health
and Gender Issues. There was also a (1) Private Sector
Dialogue on US-Caribbean Trade Opportunities for Growth, and
important Diaspora Forum took place on Tuesday where Caribbean
Nationals had an opportunity to address their concerns and
questions to Caribbean Heads of State. Also, an Art
Exhibition opened at the Organisation of American States, Hall
of Heroes by President of Haiti, H.E. Rene Preval, and on
Tuesday evening an awesome concert took place at the Kennedy
Center for the Performing Arts which featured a free concert by
multi-platinum Grammy award-winning sensation Wyclef Jean,
Reggae Grammy Award Winner - Superstar "Shaggy", The legendary Jamaican ska
group the "Ska-Talites, Jimmy Cliff, and Plunky & Oneness a
Richmond based jazz-funk band. I'm glad to say this
concert had an overwhelming turnout, which was absolutely
wonderful to see. Actually, in my opinion it was one of
the biggest attendance I've seen in this area in some time.
was brought to a close today as the last forum was on CARICOM
Development in the 21st Century: The way forward, and from all
the reports, this Conference was extremely successful.
