Greetings Friends of CaribbeanTales,
Everyone has a story to tell about their connection to this great organization and I want to share mine with you. Nine years ago, I went to the CaribbeanTales Film Festival in Barbados where I was representing Sing Your Song, which is about the lifelong activism of my father Harry Belafonte and his commitment to making the world a better place. It was during this experience that I witnessed the work that Frances-Anne Solomon and her team do to support and promote film from and about the Caribbean Diaspora.
My passion is making things happen by working with diverse artists, activists and organizations worldwide to promote cultural and civic engagement. Currently, I am the Executive Director of Sankofa.org, which was founded by my father to enlist artists, performers and prominent individuals to deliver messages of moral and political consequences. I am also on the Board of two amazing organizations: 2 nd Call, a community-based organization designed to save lives, by reducing violence and assisting personal development of high-risk individuals and the internationally acclaimed Actors Gang Theatre founded by Tim Robbins.
