What's Happening  by Todd Mangatal

todd@ariousentertainment

Greetings,

I'd like to thank everyone who enjoyed last weeks' info on Emancipation Day.  We receive a lot of positive feedback from the community.  Below  I have included some more interesting info. about Emancipation Day from Rosemary Sadlier, President  
Ontario Black History Society.  I found this information very interesting and informative.  I feel it's very important to know our history.  Remember "INFORMATION IS POWER".  See her information below.

On a sad note we at Arious Entertainment would like to send our condolences to the family of Ronnie Clauzel aka Dread Ron.  Mr Clauzel was killed in a tragic car accident on July 15th 2003. Anyone wishing to contact the family call Zoey/Nesha @ 202-276-2607 or 301-927-8721

This weekend there are lots of nice events going on all over.  Saturday in Wilmington Delaware is the 9th Annual Peoples Festival a tribute to Bob Marley.  Bob spent some of his early years in Wilmington Del.  So this will be a great way to celebrate Reggae music in the former hometown of Bob Marley. This is an outdoor event/Festival complete with lots of fun for the entire family. www.peoplesfestival.com  

Also on Saturday in Baltimore Mark Kendal and his organization West Indian National Assoc. presents the 24th Annual Trinidad & Tobago Round Robin Soccer Tournament Celebrating T&T Independence.  So if you're a soccer fan this event is always fun.  If you go out tell Mark you heard about it from Arious Entertainment. See details below.

Saturday night another great Reggae show comes to the Crossroad in Bladensburg MD. This is one you don't want to miss. Glen Washington live in concert.  If you like positive reggae music this is where you need to be Saturday night.  The Crossroads has some great shows Coming thru in August & September stay tuned for more info or check  www.crossroadsclub.com 

 

  More on Emancipation Day

You should know that the British Imperial Act was passed in July 1833 and, as was the case in those times, the law did not go into effect until one year later when notice would have been received in all of Britain's colonies around the world.  August 1st was celebrated right away, that is in 1834, in Canada and other countries.  Canada had slavery and while there may have been few still enslaved by 1833, this act still impacted their lived. However, in some places where interpretations and other political activities created a sort of graduated freedom with full Emancipation not being achieved until 1838 - especially in countries like Jamaica, there was a 4 year lag.  Emancipation Day was celebrated in Canada to mark the abolition of slavery and to rejoice in the freedom of those in the Caribbean and around the world.
When Nyahuma Obika of the Caribbean Historical Society of Trinidad and Tobago sought to have the initiative of his organization to internationalize the celebration of August 1st Emancipation Day, he came to Toronto, and it was here through letters that I myself wrote, that the first international observance of August 1st Emancipation Day was celebrated, then with the Metropolitan Toronto level, then with the nation's capital Ottawa - all with the assistance and involvement of the Ontario Black History Society.  Later, the Ontario Black History Society still supporting and working in co-operation with the initiative of the CHS, was successful in having August 1st celebrated by the Province of Ontario. (see Bill 46 below: to search check Emancipation Day Toronto, Bill 0046 of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario)  A declaration for the nation, for Canada is pending.  Ghana was much later...and is the first African country - but there was a North American country that you overlooked.
On my recent visit to the St. Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies, as well as other venues, I was pleased to inform my audience of the role that Canada has played in celebrating Emancipation Day since 1834 for themselves and in solidarity with others.  
Emancipation Day is not just a Caribbean phenomenon, nor is it an African and Caribbean phenomenon.  It was a global issue and should now be a global celebration. At our International August 1st Emancipation Day event, the OBHS included the diplomatic core ( eg. Senegal, Jamaica, Grenada, St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago), a range of speakers hailing from Canada, the Caribbean, and the United States, and participants from all over the world.
