    Well they are sponsoring a Latin Music Collector's Fair this Saturday at St. Paul's Church (Columbus Ave). It's not on the site though. I got the info from somewhere else which is how I found this site in the first place.

    There's actually one in New York City... I spoke with the founder of the center Marta Moreno Vega.. such a beautiful person... I was there not too long ago and I want to pay a visit to check out a documentary.


    You may want to include this part here:
    The Franklin H. Williams Caribbean Cultural Center / African Diaspora Institute is a not for profit, multi-disciplinary cultural arts organizations named in honor of the late Franklin H. Williams, ambassador to Ghana and who served as the second president of the Board of the Caribbean Cultural Center. Founded in 1976 by Marta Moreno Vega, Ph.D. and now president of the Board, Dr. Vega’s aim in creating this institution was to provide accurate historical information on the cultures, art and belief systems of African and their descendants. Our mission is to identify, compile and disseminate information on the creative expressions and rich cultural contributions of people of African descent, internationally. The Center continues to document, promulgate and promote the global impact of African cultures through its programming that includes: concerts, exhibitions, lectures, cultural arts in education school programs, international festivals and conferences.

    The Caribbean Cultural Center will mark its 25th Silver Anniversary in 2001. With a yearlong celebration planned the Center will continue its format of presenting innovative artistic and cultural programming that focuses on the experiences of Africans and their descendants.


    The Caribbean Cultural Center houses a resource and research center, an art gallery, and an international gift shop that features books, music and video recordings, handcrafted jewelry, instruments and other authentic art from throughout the African Diaspora.
