Letter from the Editor:


I always feel a sense of excitement at this time of year. First, comes Thanksgiving, which brings Black Friday, and not very far behind, arrives the festive season of Christmas.

This is also the time when we begin to plan, with the hope of producing another exciting Folk Festival season. Our 2012 theme: Masquerade Lives! – will capture the history, vibrancy and colorful spectacle of this art form that continues to mesmerize and fill Guyanese with cheer at Christmastime.                 

As we move forward, we promise to invigorate you our readers with not only cultural programs, but also inspiring features about Guyanese who make us proud of their achievements.

One example is that of young filmmaker Yaphet Jackman who is passionate about educating himself, and sharing his knowledge to inspire others.

This issue also remembers the many Guyanese who lost their lives among the 918 souls that perished in the Jonestown mass suicide in November, thirty-three years ago. Ambassador Bayney Karran honored the events of that fateful day when he delivered words of healing at the dedication of a monument in Oakland, California.

These are just some of the many articles that you will enjoy.

We would like to welcome author Lear Matthews to our team. We look forward to your continued words of encouragement, and suggestions that would help us to continue to deliver a newsletter of the highest standard to your in-box.

Please join our Facebook group, and log on to  for for upcoming events.

Tangerine Clarke, Editor.
