First off, let me wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Valentine's. A day honoring lovers, where greeting cards and/or gifts are exchanged by loved ones to express affection.
This day never really had any meaning to my husband and I, because we believe in expressing one's feelings and showing affection every day, and not just one day out of the year. However, I know it has a lot of meaning to many. So, again have a Happy Valentine's Day (February 14, 2005)

As you know it's been very quiet in our area and in our community since many have been in Trinidad experiencing the 2005 Carnival, but I understand the I.C.E Promotions and Radio Boyz fete that was held last Saturday at the T&T Clubhouse in DC was "rammed". I.C.E. seemed to be very pleased with the turn out, and he indicated lots of "who's who in the Caribbean Community came out to experience Carnival at the Club House. I know I.C.E. really appreciates all the support and love! Don't forget to check out his upcoming show featuring Maximus Dan on February 25th.
This week we continue celebrating Black History Month (February), which is an annual celebration that has existed since 1926. Much of the credit of Black History Month can go to Harvard Scholar Dr. Carter G. Woodson, who was determined to bring Black History into the mainstream public arena. Woodson devoted his life to making "the world see the Negro as a participant rather than as a lay figure in history." In 1926, Mr. Woodson organized the first annual Negro History Week, which took place during the second week of February. Woodson chose this date to co-incide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln - two men who had greatly impacted the black population. Over time, Negro History Week evolved into the Black History Month that we know today - a four-week-long celebration of African American History.
This week I choose to celebrate a woman my husband and I admire immensely, Ms. Cathy Hughes. You may recall Todd had written about Ms. Hughes in several of our past e-mails. She is a major inspiration in our life.
Another person we greatly admire and who we feel we must pay tribute to during this special month is Quincy Jones, Jr.
Davis have been married to Ruby Dee since 1948 (approximately 57
years) and they have had a wonderful life together. Their work, in
fact, has always explored and celebrated the lessons of black history in
the United States, making the couple, over the decades, an inspiration and
iconic presence in contemporary African American culture. Both received
the NAACP Image Awards for their 1996 CBS series "Promised
Land," and delivered searing performances in Roots: The Next
Generation. Their joint autobiography published in 2000, With
Ossie and Ruby: In This Life Together, recounts their work together,
not only in the arts, but also as artists at the forefront of political
activism, ranging from their vigorous opposition to Senator Joseph
McCarthy's Communist witch hunt to their tireless work on behalf of civil
rights, voting rights and equal rights for all.
will miss this great man...Ossie Davis, he has contributed tremendously to
