Quote of The Day

© Jose Luis Pelaez/Blend Images/Corbis
“It is a mistake for anyone to think he has lived too long in his old, unsatisfactory ways to make the great change. If you switch on the light in a dark room, it makes no difference how long it was dark because the light will still shine. Be teachable. That is the whole secret.”

Vernon Howard from The Power of Your Supermind

Annual Jamaica Day Celebration

Today July 25th @ Downsview Park 35 Carl Hall Road (Near Keele St and Sheppard Ave West)

Quote of The Day

“Begin to consciously break your agreement with the mediocrity present in the tyranny of trends. No longer consider trendsetters as people who are to be admired or imitated. Break free from the hold of what society tells us we should be like. Be drawn into the presence of those who exemplify the next level of human evolution—a spiritual teacher or spiritual community. Each of us has arrived on planet Earth to behold, to participate in the adventure of exploring the truth that we are enlightened beings having a human incarnation.” Unknown

Secrets of a Black Boy

September 23- October 3, 2009
The Music Hall, Toronto
"Some secrets are darker than others."

Colombian, Colombia

The Black African presence in Colombia dates back to Colombia's colonial period. Afro Panamanians from the colonial period are also related to many of these Afro Colombians. Black African slaves began being imported by the Spaniards in the first decade of the 16th century. By the 1520s, Blacks were being imported into Colombia steadily to replace the rapidly declining native American population. Blacks were forced to work in gold mines, on sugar cane plantations, cattle ranches, and large haciendas. Black African labor was essential in all the regions of Colombia, even until modern times. continue reading here
