Cuban Revolution: 60th Anniversary

Tonight we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the communist revolution with the people of Cuba, the Cuban Ambassador to The Bahamas, and friends of Cuba. On January 1, Cuba will mark the 60th anniversary of the communist revolution that brought the late and enigmatic leader Fidel Castro to power. The revolution began in July 1953, and continued sporadically until the rebels finally ousted Fulgencio Batista on 31 December 1959, replacing his government with a socialist state. . #cuba #revolution #socialism #bahamas #fidelcastro #communism#friendsofcuba

Fancy Dress Festival of Ghana

A friend shared this video with us. Supposedly, it's a festival from West Africa. Anyone familiar with the Junkanoo festival of The Bahamas, would have to say the similarity between the two is undeniable. And it's because we are one AFRICAN people. As Kwame Nkrumah once said, “I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me.” For more information about the Fancy Dress Festival and Junkanoo click here.
