The 2015 meeting of the National Network On Cuba was held November 7-8 in Washington DC. The highlights of the meeting were, without question, the presence of ICAP President, Kenia Serrano and Leima Martinez, official of the America’s Division. It was the first meeting of the NNOC since the December 17, 1014 return of the remaining 3 of the Cuban 5. All present joyfully acknowledged this achievement. In addition, we were joined by representative of the Cuban Embassy, the first time we were able to greet the diplomats as representing the embassy rather than the Interests Section. It was also the first time that an ICAP President had been given a travel visa by the United States. All the events were held at University of the District of Columbia David A Clarke School of Law.
The Egypt on the Potomac Field Trip is a guided journey through Washington, DC that uncovers secrets hidden in plain sight. Did you know there is information and wisdom embedded throughout the visual make up of the city: in federal building architecture, street alignment, symbols on streets and buildings, and numerical patterns found throughout all of these elements, among others? Here
By examining this embedded information, and exploring aspects of African mythology, African American, American, and Washington DC history, Brother Anthony Browder illuminates the ancient Egyptian influence on the founding fathers of the United States of America, as well as their acknowledgement of the Nile Valley origins of civilization.
The three-hour Field Trip, sponsored by IKG Cultural Resource Center and was created by author and cultural historian Anthony T. Browder, consists of video segments and site visits (both on and off the bus). The participants will come to understand the story of DC’s history that is hidden in plain sight. The event was sponsored by Appeal Inc. and held on July 25, 2015. See http://www.appealinc.org/events.html for future events
New York City will celebrate the creative works of an artistic giant with a retrospective exhibition-taking place simultaneously at six distinguished galleries. Collectively, these institutions will house over five decades of works in five mediums created by the master Otto Neals, curated by Dr. Myrah Brown Green.
It was with great pleasure and admiration that Craig attended his cousin, Otto Neals’ exhibition.
Who is Otto Neals?
Over decades, Neals emerged as one of the most respected visual artists in our lifetime. As a participant in the Black Arts movement he co-founded the historic Weusi Artist Collective and Nyumba Ya Sanaa Gallery in Harlem. In 1958 he took a lead role in assisting with establishing the Fulton Art Fair in Brooklyn. Neals has worked and exhibited with iconic masters, including Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, and Tom Feelings.
Neals’ work has been exhibited in distinguished institutions in the U.S. and abroad, including the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, the Columbia Museum of Art, the Huntsville Museum of Art and the Ghana National Museum. His work is in the collections of Congressman John Lewis, legendary jazz musician Randy Weston, Harry Belafonte, and Oprah Winfrey. The media has recognized Neals’ profound talent: he has been profiled in numerous outlets including The New York Times, EBONY magazine, Black Enterprise. You can read an article printed in 2011 in the NY Daily News
Neals has won many awards and in 1995, Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Alliance commissioned him to create a bronze sculpture based on the works of award-winning children’s book author Ezra Jack Keats. The work, Peter and Willie, is located in the “Imagination Playground” in Prospect Park. Mr. Neals was presented with the New York City Arts Commission’s Award for Excellence in Design for this work. Other commissions include 10 bronze plaques for the “Harlem Walk of Fame,” a bronze sculpture for the Brooklyn Children’s Center, a 20-foot mural for Kings County Hospital, and most recently a bronze portrait of the late Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton for City College of the City University of New York.
About his art, Neals says, “My talent as an artist comes directly from my ancestors. I am merely a receiver, an instrument for receiving some of the energies that permeate our entire universe and I give thanks for having been chosen to absorb those artistic forces.”
