10th Annual International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade

By Special Correspondent and Senior Editor Kadia Goba at the U.N.
March 29,2017

This year’s theme, “recognizing the legacy and contributions of people of African descent,” was fulfilled by acknowledging the sordid past of slavery while honoring the contributions of its survivors and descendants. Malaysia, Romania, Sri Lanka, Norway, Moldova, Germany, Equatorial New Guinea, Cuba and the United States were among some of the nations represented at the program.

The transatlantic slave trade was the largest forced migration in history, and undeniably one of the most inhumane. The extensive exodus of Africans spread to many areas of the world over a 400-year period and was unprecedented in the annals of recorded human history, according to the U.N. As a direct result of the transatlantic slave trade, the greatest movement of Africans was to the Americas — with 96 per cent of the captives from the African coasts arriving on cramped slave ships at ports in South America and the Caribbean Islands.

THE DEVIL’S CANDY Film Review

By Gregg Morris, March 17 2017

Ray Smilie (played by Pruitt Taylor Vince) has bad things in mind for Zooey (played smartly by Kirara Glasco).

One hell of a movie. Heavy on terror, rife with sinister happenings. More terror than gore but gore there is about this cool family that moves into a marvelous house in this small Texan town and comes under siege from Satanic forces.
