Greetings On Line Family





Happy 44th Independence  Trinidad & Tobago


I just want to thank the many among our on-line family for their support, their kind words and love.  To the folks from the community who have stopped me in the streets and at events and have shown me so much love, I sincerely do appreciate it and you.   Together there is no doubt we can build a strong and respected community!!!

On Thursday, August 31st, 2006, Trinidad and Tobago celebrated it's 44th Independence.  The Trinidad and Tobago Embassy here in Washington DC has been hosting several cultural events during this past week.  Artist Shalini Seereram exhibited at the Embassy for several days, and last Sunday, August 26, 2006, The National Steel Orchestra performed at the National Aquarium at Baltimore's Waterfront (Inner Harbor).  

The Embassy also hosted a reception on Monday, August 28, 2006, a cultural evening at the OAS headquarters with David Rudder, and the Celebrations continued on August 29th with David Rudder in concert along with pannist Dane Gulston at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Millennium Stage.  I attended this event and it was very nice, it was also nice to see so many folks from our on-line community in attendance as well.  I even met people who traveled as far as from Richmond Va. to attend this event, so people came from near and far for these celebrations.

 All the festivities concludes on September 2nd with a benefit concert at the Embassy of France featuring tenor soloist of the Lydiaan Singers, Eddie Cumberbatch.  See details below.

Washington DC - The steering committee consisting of Dr. Acklyn Lynch, Mr. Stephen Matthews, Dr. Melodie Toby and Mr. Michael Matthews appointed by Her Excellency, the Honorable Marina A. Valère, Trinidad & Tobago’s Ambassador to the United States, is seeking cash or in-kind support for a benefit concert to be held on Saturday, September 2, 2006 in celebration of the 44th Anniversary of Trinidad and Tobago’s Independence. All proceeds will go to Love in Action and the Torres Foundation for the Blind, two non-profit organizations dedicated to raising funds to meet the needs of school children and the visually impaired in Trinidad and Tobago. The event which will be held at La Maison Française at the French Embassy in Washington, DC, will showcase three renowned nationals of Trinidad and Tobago, and will be held under the patronage of the Ambassador.

Our aim is to generate funds for the selected non-profit organizations. Your assistance and the support of others will help to defray the many expenses incurred in staging the event. These include the cost of venue, a pre-concert reception for patrons of the event; travel, hotel and meals for the artistes, printing of programs, tickets and promotional material. In addition, contributions of $ 300 or more in cash or in kind will receive an invitation to attend the reception hosted by the Ambassador. The auditorium can accommodate three hundred guests and the minimum donation requested is $ 50 per person for each event.

Patrons will be entitled to attend the pre-concert reception, receive special seating at the concert, and will be listed prominently in the Program credits, the souvenir journal, and a DVD of the event. This second annual Concert Series will be the culmination of a week long celebration of Trinidad and Tobago’s independence to be officially celebrated on August 31. It will be yet another aspect of the range and excellence of talent that is the hallmark of all that Trinidad and Tobago offers.

We look forward to your support.  The Steering Committee (301)576-0683


New York City Celebration of Trinidad and Tobago's 44th Independence-August 31st

New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn along with Caribbean-American Councilmembers Dr. Kendall B. Stewart, Leroy Comrie, Yvette D. Clarke, Chair, Committee and the New York City Council Black, Latino and Asian Caucus, will join in celebrating the island's 44th Independence at Council Chambers, City Hall

Several nationals of Trinidad and Tobago are slated to receive New York City Council proclamations for their contribution to the heritage and culture of New York City.

In extolling the anniversary, T&T's Consul General To NY, Dr. Harold Robertson, urged for "renewed dedication to nation building, commitment to discipline, productive pursuits, placement of national interest above self interest and the restitution of the family unit as the bedrock of our society."
And he added, "Every national, whether residing at home or abroad, has a responsibility to work towards the upliftment of Trinidad & Tobago."
Prime Minister Patrick Manning in a message directed to North American-based Trinis, called for nationals to "... remember always the important words of our national anthem which stress the unity of our country in which every creed and race find an equal place."  And he urged them to continue to play a part in the country's development, "given the accelerated growth and development currently taking place ... (and the) new and exciting opportunities (that) are emerging for the establishment and development of additional, international linkages in the domains of business, culture and industry."

We at Arious would like to say to our good friend Tony S. Carr who is one of our Caribbean Radio Personalities here in Washington DC.  His Caribbean radio program can be heard on WPFW 89.3 FM Thursday nights beginning at 10:00 pm, and you can check out his website www.dccaribbeanconnection.com .  Mr. Carr will be honored in October for his Excellent Service at Excelsior High School.  The Excelsior Fraternity celebrates their 75th Anniversary this year of the founding of Excelsior High School, the Excelsior Alumni Association (USA) Inc. will honor Mr. Carr (one of its illustrious members) along with 2 other illustrious members of the Excelsior Community.

The awardees will be recognized at the 37th anniversary Dinner/Dance and Awards function, Saturday October 14, 2006 at the Ramada Plaza at JFK, Queens, NY, in their roles as distinguished alumni and for their seminal contribution to Excelsior’s well-earned reputation for excellence. See the details below:

Anthony (Tony) Carr (Distinguished Service Award) is regarded in many quarters as the Father of Excelsior Athletics, who shepherded Excelsior’s reputation as High School track & Field power-a reputation forged on an era of sustained brilliance.

Tony first started coaching at Excelsior in 1964, a sojourn that coincided with a meteoric rise in the fortunes of Excelsior Track and Field team at Boys’ Champs.  In just his first year at the helm, Excelsior was able to move from 16th place to 8th place in the standings.

The subsequent years marked an era of sustained brilliance marked a dogged run at the overall championship. The Tony Carr Years saw 3rd placing in 1965 and 1966; and close 2nd place finishes in 167, 1968 and 1969.

Tony’s career at Excelsior was highlighted by the development of a number of athletes who went on to represent Jamaica at the Olympics and other international competition. These athletes included Neville Myton, Errol Stewart, Garth Case, Richard Harware, Leighton Young, Hewitt Depass, Desmond Shakespeare, among others.

During the Carr Years at Excelsior dominated the sprint relays at Boys Champs during the sixties and became the second Jamaican High School to win at the All Championship of America Final at the Annual Penn Relays Festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Excelsior athletes earned an average of 4-6 scholarships annually to major American Universities compared to the 1-2 that earned annually by the school that was the perennial champions.

Anthony Carr is the host of a popular radio program in Washington, DC.

Cynthia McKinney Presents Hip-Hop Forum at Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference
By Chris Richburg
Date: 8/29/2006


Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) will host a Hip-Hop forum at this year's Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference.

The Hip-Hop Powershop, scheduled for Sept. 7, will feature a panel that will discuss gang summits and industry manipulation of the true message and meaning of Hip-Hop artists.

Panelists include DC Hip-Hop artists Asheru and Head-Roc as well as Rev. Yearwood (Hip-Hop Caucus), Jared Ball (University of Maryland, Hip-Hop historian, Blackademics on WPFW), Lisa Frager (Industry Ears, Hip-Hop media expert) and former Crips and Gangster Disciple gangmembers.

The event is one of a series "braintrust forums" McKinney will host that will examine critical current issues facing African-Americans and the entire country.

Other forums will address past victims of COINTELPRO abuses, and their renewal in many forms since 9/11 as well as discuss the award-winning films American Blackout and Sir! No Sir!

American Blackout documents Black voter disenfranchisement and voter fraud in national and local elections, while Sir! No Sir! Looks at the hidden history of GI and veteran resistance that ended the war in Vietnam.

An outspoken critic of the Bush Administration, McKinney spearheaded a national investigation into the 2000 election voting irregularities.

Last year, she introduced House Resolution 4210, a new bill that calls for the United States government to release all documents it has collected on slain rapper Tupac Shakur.

HR 4210 calls for "the creation of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection at the National Archives; and a second repository at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia."

The Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference will be Sept. 6 through 9 at the Washington Convention Center, 801 Mt Vernon Pl., NW.

 Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York.

The Miss Trinidad and Tobago New York takes place at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Haft Auditorium, West 27th Street at Seventh Avenue, in Manhattan, set to begin at 7:00 pm.  A dozen young women will be competing for the title.

This year - the 10th year, founder Renee Cummings will pay special tribute to the work of T&T born master hair weaver Clem Lue Yat who will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award along with legendary T&T queen maker Jacqui Koon of the famed House of Jacqui Modeling Agency.

Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York, says Cummings, is celebrated not as a beauty pageant but as a developmental program for young women of Trinidad & Tobago heritage living in New York. The T&T-born Cummings has spent the last decade branding the pageant, adding, "There is nothing more beautiful than an educated woman."  And she has strived to redefine the word beauty. "There is this big myth that beauty comes in a particular, shape, size, and hue but not at Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York," said Cummings. "We embrace diversity and encourage difference. We do not look for generic or archaic cookie-cutter images of beauty. We look for real women with a real contribution to make," Cummings added.

For a preview of this year's line up log on to http://www.missttny.com.Tickets for the show are $40 in advance.
Or you can catch a live preview on Saturday, September 9th aboard the Sheryll Princess cruise from Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn from 7 P.M. Tickets for the ride is $45 with a free buffet but cash bar. Music will be by DJ Spice and Third Base.Tickets for theboat ride andthe showcan be purchased either by calling 212-340-1334 or emailing: tickets@missttny.com.



Brooklyn, New York

Support New York Council Woman Yvette Clarke as she runs for Congress - the 11th Congressional District Seat.  Victory to Ms. Clarke's  on September 12th.

Dear Friend,

I am New York City Councilmember Yvette Clarke and I am running for Congress because the communities I represent are being harmed by the mean-spirited leadership in power in Washington. An independent voice from Brooklyn is long overdue. I will not stand by while the vast majority of central Brooklyn residents remain marginalized by the policymakers who impact on our lives.

Let's Work Together . . .

We must expand access to healthcare, not reduce it. We must stand up for new Americans, not criminalize them or criminalize those who help them. We should put our money where our mouth is on education, and make sure our children have top- notch schools. We must protect a woman’s fundamental right to make decisions about her own body, and expand her opportunities to care for herself and her family. We must assure that economic opportunities are inclusive, because our diverse communities must grow together, or our vast potential will not be realized.

Now I really need your support . . .

Yvette Clarke for Congress  For more details on The campaign, the web site is www.voteyvette.com
