The home of cowboy boot wearing citizens all-year around, amazing BBQ pit, music, bullfighting, culture and of course the people.

#dcstatehood DON'T MUTE DC!

I spent the day in DC's own--historic Anacostia District in Washington, DC among the rare parts of the city that still retains local Black Culture. It houses a strong presence of black ownership, establishments, education and recreational centers where Black Men coach basketball and mentor Youth, galleries with African inspired sculpture, paintings and fashion design, and of course dining that features Washingtonians favorites including Fried Fish, Chicken with Mambo Sauce and Sweet Tea.

During the course two weeks, attendees would co-mingle, share, discuss, and create one community of people through the arts: music, dance, culinary art, crafts, fashion, film, literature, children expositions and more.

Trinidad & Tobago really out did themselves with the Design and Set-up of Carifesta XIVp particularly at the Grand Stand in Queens Park. Whether you were entering through the side gates as personnel and staff or to meander through the welcome gate...there was a scenic route and display of color and culture all around. When you first enter in, you are greeted by mock flight attendants in side of the cabin of a plane, upon exiting the archway is there for picture taking with avenue signs name after the representing countries and islands. There is a vintage cobblestone Victorian town accompanied by colorful Cuban style houses with movie scene revolving lights--really making for the fun and magic of this reunion. There was much to see, do, taste and experience. The marketplace carried dishes from Haiti, Guyana, Guadelope and more, taking locals on a sensory trip off shores and pulling
