On Thursday, August 31st, 2006, Trinidad and Tobago
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
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
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

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."

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.

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.
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 .
