How did your organization start and grow?
I have 30 years in the serve of the Ancient ancestors, and many of the elders didnt really want to train the community, but you can join, it was very expensive and non productive from outside the black communities, You could ask question or you were being disrespectful, you wasnt allowed to work because you didnt know anything, every thing was in Spanish nothing English, so in 1997 I decided to create my own schools for my community in English after traveling to Africa, Bahamas,Trinidad and Tobago, Brazil, and Columbia I learned so much, also my Godmother and God-brothers and sisters, had birth African American Caribbean Cultural Center in Ft.
