Throughout the year, the NY based Caribbean Cultural Theatre features numerous wordsmiths as part of its Poets and Passion: Celebration of the Word Series. Included among these in 2011 were Escape from a Leper Colony Author Tiphanie Yanique , The Book of Night Women author Marlon James , Angel author Merle Collins , Anna In Between author Elizabeth Nunez , Sections of an Orange author Anton Nimblett, The River’s Song author Jacqueline Bishop, Hear their Echoes author Yolaine St. Fort, and others. What an amazing line-up.
Someday, I hope to be part of this series as well. Perhaps next year when my new book Oh Gad! comes out (?) Speak your hopes and dreams into reality, right? The Caribbean Cultural Theatre continues to do just that with a lot of support from partners, patrons, media, writers, fans , and others. In the spirit of thanksgiving, they took the time out to say thanks. And since we support the Caribbean literary arts wherever it bears fruit, we’re happy to share their gratitude with you:
It’s been a bumpy ride this year, but we made it. Older, stronger and hopefully wiser. We made it! Thank you for coming along for the ride.
Thanks for the encouragement and warmth of those we lost along the way: Dawn Bennett, Anthony Bonair, Learie Corbin and Marco Mason.
Thanks to the investment of our funders, sponsors and Friends who supported a vision of culture that entertains as it inspires.
Thanks to the insight of partners throughout New York metropolitan area for being open to presenting and promoting the complexity of our experiences on page, screen, and stage.
Thanks to the curiosity of audiences who have engaged us in the bitter-sweet narrative of a people’s struggle and aspiration.
Thanks to the passion of practitioners and the dedication of volunteers committed to Tellin We Own Story.
Join us for the journey in 2012!
