Youth In Spotlight At 2013 Marcus Garvey Extravaganza




“These young people are the seeds of the future,” said I. Jabulani Tafari, vice president of the Rootz Foundation as he introduced the 2013 Marcus Garvey Youth Service awardees at the 2013 Marcus Garvey Rootz Extravaganza, held August 17, 2013, at the Joseph Carter Park in Fort Lauderdale.




In a program that featured Dr. Leonard Jeffries, educator, activist and African history scholar; Baba Willie “Mukasa” Ricks, recipient of the Marcus Garvey Lifetime Achievement Award; and dub poet Malachi Smith, who gave a tribute to fellow poet the late Mikey Smith, it was the youth awardees that shone the brightest.
