August 6, 2011 by staff
Independence Day Jamaica, Message from the Jamaica Independence 49th 2011: At midnight on Saturday, August 6, 2011, Jamaica will officially begin a yearlong celebration to commemorate the 50th anniversary of independence.
This will be a milestone in the global success story for all people of Jamaican descent worldwide. It will also be an important opportunity to celebrate our achievements and the impact on our society and the modern world. Similarly, it is also timely to reflect on the future of the half-century of our independence.
For many communities around the world that Jamaicans have made their home in the UK, Canada, USA, in pockets throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, Africa, and many other cities in the world more small ways, we proud of the undeniable power of Jamaican culture, music, food, and an indomitable spirit. As a prancing leap ‘in the street dance, remember that we have barely scratched the surface of our unlimited potential. This potential can only be struck with a realization that comes to recognize that we are a nation without borders expanding a population of over five million on the world stage. We have to look in the mirror and recognize our sense of community among themselves.
In the coming year, we encourage all organizations and persons of Jamaican descent for the treatment of this 50 anniversary with a higher level of respect and commitment to this way of raising our level of awareness in the community and connection. This will require a high level of communication and participation in the deepening of our ties. In the U.S., we will be participating in a conversation in a more self-determination of the platform galvanizing community involvement in the diaspora in the regional conferences in the Midwest, Northeast, and here in the southeast later fall this. We hope you will join this conversation would be in their own interest and personal manner.
On a personal note to our region, we would like to thank our Information Centre Jamaica indomitable duty officer, Cheryl Wynter, for being a beacon of communication and consistent information connectivity to the wider community of all events within our vibrant diaspora.
We wish him the best of what God has to offer in their personal and professional efforts. Our Jamaican diaspora is more mature and informed their work.
We will raise a glass and make a skank in the dance of our ancestors. We are 50. This is our moment.
Happy 50th Independence.
