The mission to ensure that the public is more aware of the Garifuna heritage and culture will be done through a film screening to be held at the International Garifuna Research Centre (IGRC) or Yurumei House on Sunday, April 15, from 4:00 p.m.{{more}}

The film “Clearing Borders” produced by American videographer Alicia Lucca will be the featured motion picture shown at the two storey building which is located at the Arnos Vale stretch, opposite Trotman’s Depot.

President of TGHF, David Darkie Williams said the film screening at Yurumei House is the first official event since the building’s opening on March 1, 2012, and he extends a cordial invitation to the public to attend the cultural affair, which he noted is free of cost.

Williams reinforced that hosting the film night this Sunday at 4:00 p.m. at Yurumei House is in keeping with the institution’s mandate to keep the heritage of the Garifuna peoples alive, whether through public awareness.

The TGHF President proudly noted that the Garifuna culture is this country’s intangible heritage and invited members of the public to be part of the year long activities to mark the historic 215 years since the expulsion of the Garifuna people from the island of Yurumei, which is the Ancestral Homeland known presently as St Vincent.
