    Taking place in NY this weekend

    Dear Friends and Family,

    The Howard University Trinidad and Tobago Alumni Association is taking part in the AIDS Walk Caribbean, Brooklyn, New York 5k walk on Sunday June 8, 2008 to raise funds for the CPIC AIDS FUND.

    If you are unable to participate, please visit our website (link can be seen below) to make a donation. All proceeds go to the CPIC AIDS fund. We are hoping to generate at least $500.00 in donations, so please forward to all your friends!!

    If you are able to participate, we intend to meet up at the Flatbush Ave. - Brooklyn College (Subway Station): 2,5 Train) @ 9AM.

    We feel blessed to have the opportunity to give back to the community by raising funds for AIDS education and a hospice for persons living with AIDS. You may be unaware that every nine minutes a female of color is infected with HIV, and it takes the lives of more people of color than any other group. I hope you'll join us in supporting this fight.

    Thanks.

    In Silver Spring MD this friday and 17th til the 21st

    As many of you may know, June commemorates Caribbean Heritage Month. This Friday June 6, at AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, the 8th Annual D.C. Caribbean Filmfest kicks off! The opening night reception begins at 6:30 p.m., and hour later the first film of the festival, "Africa Unite: A Celebration of Bob Marley's Vision" will begin. Tickets to either event are $15 a head. Please come out if you can!

    The rest of the festival is taking place at UDC in from June 17 to June 21, all of the screenings are free. There are some really interesting films being shown, so if you have the time you should pass through.

    The festival features, AFRICA UNITE, THE PRESIDENT HAS AIDS—winner of the 2007 Paul Robeson Prize for Best Diaspora Film, FESPACO. A WINTER TALE, winner of the 2007 Audience Award Best Feature, T&T Film Festival. SISTAGOD, World Premiere at TIFF 2006. The hit from Barbados HIT FOR SIX. Barbados' first feature film—FROM BARBADOS WITH LOVE, and the 35th anniversary presentation of THE HARDER THEY COME.

    AFRICA UNITE
    Friday, June 6, 6:30 Reception, 7:30 Screening
    At once concert tribute, Marley family travelogue and humanitarian documentary, AFRICA UNITE ignites the screen with the spirit of world-renowned reggae icon Bob Marley in every frame. In commemoration of Bob's 60th birthday, AFRICA UNITE is centered on the Marleys' first-ever family trip to Ethiopia in 2005. There, in the capital city of Addis Ababa, three generations of Marleys take part in a landmark one-week event including a 12-hour concert like no other, attended by more than 350,000 people from around the world. Appearing alongside the many Marleys are Lauryn Hill, Angélique Kidjo and Danny Glover. DIR/SCR/PROD Stephanie Black. EX PROD Rita Marley, Cedella Marley, Danny Glover, Joslyn Barnes. US/Jamaica, 2008, color, 91 min. NOT RATED


    THE HARDER THEY COME
    Friday, June 6, 9:45; Saturday, June 7, 12:00 midnight
    The original "midnight movie!" Billed as "Jamaica's very first feature-length film," THE HARDER THEY COME introduced world audiences to Jamaican music, one year before Bob Marley and the Wailers' debut album would become an international smash. Popstar Jimmy Cliff plays Ivan, a rural Jamaican musician who journeys to Kingston in search of fame and fortune as a musician. Pushed to desperate circumstances by shady record producers, he instead starts selling ganja, achieving notoriety after he shoots and kills a corrupt cop—becoming public enemy number one at the same time that his single starts climbing the charts.
