Today would have been my homegirl Paula Lawrence Birthday. You made me and my sister feel at home when we came to Canada. Always encouraged me to push on through life journey. #WillNeverForgetU#islandBoy#WakandaForever#RIP 🇯🇲 🇨🇦 🙅🏿♂️🙅🏿♂️
🗣️🗣️We are baaaaaack 📣📣 with another #decolonizinghispaniola event: LAST TIME TICKETS SOLD OUT IN 2 DAYS, DON'T MISS THIS
This is an intimate gathering for people of #Haitian and #Dominican descent to deconstruct the divisions that define Hispaniola and discuss how to move past the current narrative to reshape our future. Break bread with us and share the soups that embody the strength and resilience of these two people.
The discussions will center around evaluating our ideas of nationality, nationhood, ethnicity, race, color, class, colonial identity, historical memory and trauma, spirituality and economic inequality in the context of #DR & #Haiti .
Oh I wish I was there tonight on Jost Van Dyke
Sipping on some Foxy's Firewater rum
Or kickin' back with Ivan
With all my friends down in the islands
Wouldn't take much for me to up and run
To another life somewhere in the sun.
