Brooklyn, New York

New York Council Woman Yvette Clarke is running for Congress and one of our own Mr. Ernest Skinner (who recently moved back home to New York) is raising funds to assure Ms. Clarke's  victory on September 12th.

Mr. Ernest Skinner, one of our own community leaders here in Washington DC, moved back to New York approximately a  year ago, and he has resumed his role as a community activist.  He informed us that he has stepped back into his old role in an attempt to influence the outcome of the 11th Congressional District Seat in his home town of Brooklyn, New York.  His first step was hitting the streets in very hot weather collecting signatures to get Yvette Clarke on the ballot. We are proud to know that he obtain several hundred+ signatures, and Ms. Clarke’s  campaign submitted well over 10,000. He is now currently raising funds to assure the victory in the Primary on September 12th. Mr. Skinner and two of his friends are hosting a fundraiser for Ms. Yvette Clarke on August 17th to aid her effort. So to all our New York On-line family, please support Mr. Skinner and his partners in their efforts by attending his fundraiser for Councilwoman Yvette Clarke with her candidacy for the 11th Congressional District seat.  Click Here to See the details on the fundraiser and the location.   

Ms. Yvette Clarke’s campaign has gained national attention because of its Voting Rights dynamic and the attempt of an interloper to buy his way into the fray. Please support Ms. Clarke and  be as generous as possible.

We would like to congratulate another person from our community who just published a book.  Congratulations to Dr. J. Edsel Edmunds, Former Ambassador of St. Lucia to the UN, OAS, and US on publishing


“For our Youth, Leaders of Tomorrow”  

   The book The Triangle of Success by Dr. J. Edsel Edmunds will inspire, motivate, and empower our young generation to achieve their potential.  It has been recommended by distinguished educators as required reading at all levels, for students, parents, teachers and youth leaders.  It encourages all of us to engage ourselves in a process of continuing education for “what we know is infinitesimally small compared to what we do not know.”  It propels us to discover the enormous potential within us and to develop an enquiring mind. The author alludes to the differences and commonalities of humankind and at the same time points the way towards a reduction of world conflicts, and contribution to world peace, all symbolized by the geometric interrelated points of a triangle.

Trinidad & Tobago's groundbreaking rapso group, 3canal, and a collective of DC artists, bring you "the poetry of Calypso" and "the consciousness of Soca," with echoes of carnival rituals. In English, Spanish and Caribbean Creoles.
Caribeana Imperia is an exhilarating exploration of the power of the word in the rhythm of the word, utilizing archetypal forms of carnivalesque ritual, both carnal and spiritual.  Manwarren comments, "In this age of globalization, caught between outside influences and our own potential, between old stereotypes and what we may be, we reach outside of self to say, look we!
Caribeana Imperia (continues)

In this original musical production, 3canal will lead an unprecedented collective of artists from Trinidad & Tobago and Washington, DC in speaking through the rhythm and movement of the islands with rapso, described as the poetry of calypso with the consciousness of soca. With music as the unifying element, the show will weave together texts and storytelling in English, Spanish and Caribbean Creole, incorporating language into powerful projected images.

Billboard magazine says of 3canal: "[Its originality] has placed this group on a fast track to global pop stardom."

Bollywood Fashion Awards - July 29, 2006

Press Release

July 26th 2006


The family of legend Sammy Davis Jr. has chosen the Bollywood Fashion Awards to be the platform for the special “Sammy Davis Jr. Award.”   Sammy Davis Jr., often described as "the world's greatest entertainer” also epitomized the symbiotic relationship between entertainment and fashion which, fittingly, is the mantra of the Bollywood Fashion Awards.

Ben Vereen is a true American legend.  The Tony winner’s name is synonymous with a myriad of Broadway shows including Jesus Christ Superstar, Pippin, Sweet Charity, Wicked and The Wizard of Oz.  He also had many notable film roles in hit movies such as Funny Lady and All That Jazz.  In television, he was the star of Tenspeed and Brown Shoe.  He also appeared in popular series such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Jamie Foxx Show, Star-Trek The Next Generation, and The Nanny but will always be remembered for his role as “Chicken” George Moore in the cult TV Series Roots.  Vereen followed these achievements with his own network special, "Ben Vereen: His Roots," which won seven Emmy Awards. He also appeared in "The Jesse Owens Story," and the CBS mini-series, " Ellis Island ," for which he received a Golden Globe nomination.  Most recently, Vereen graced the Broadway stage starring as 'The Ghost of Christmas Present' in the Madison Square Garden production of "A Christmas Carol" to outstanding reviews

“We were initially going to keep the honoree name a surprise but we were just to excited and honored that, Ben Vereen, a legend, will be participating in this year’s Awards,” said Chairman of the Bollywood Awards, Kamal Dandona.  His excitement is evident, especially because, the Bollywood Awards has achieved another “first.”  It was the first South Asian Awards ceremony to have an international celebrity participate in the festivities.  Michael Jackson attended the inaugural ceremony of the Bollywood Awards in 1999 and now, the Bollywood Awards, is the first to have an Honorary Award instituted by the family of an American legend, an honor indeed. 

Major celebrities like Tyra Banks, Jerry Hall, Steven Seagal, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Nikki Hilton, and many others have donned Indian outfits and finery at past Fashion Awards.  This year will be no exception.  The Bollywood Fashion Awards 2006 will be the 6th annual gala event of international stature honoring the outstanding achievements of Indian fashion designers during the prior year. Unlike any fashion awards of its kind, the event will bring together the top international designers, most ravishing models, and the hottest celebrities together to honor the colliding worlds of fashion and entertainment. The Awards will be held at the world-famous Roseland Ballroom.  For over 75 years, the Roseland Ballroon has hosted concerts and fashion shows for the likes of for Madonna and Versace respectively.

Past Designers who have set the catwalk on fire at the previous Bollywood Fashion Awards include:  Manish Malhotra, Neeta Lulla, Tarun Tahiliani, Ritu Beri, Suneet Varma, Diane Von Furstenberg, Anne Bowen (Designer to Gwyneth Paltrow, Liz Hurley, etc.).  The designers showcasing their collection this year are the fashion guru to the stars Manish Malhotra and India ’s most celebrated new designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
