HOW IS THIS FOR A SOLUTION? Introduction: It is not often when history, creativity, innovation and initiative converge, but we have seen this in our history before, with the Million Man March, Kwanzaa and the March on Washington. The organizing and mobilizing efforts of the IYPAD Facebook People's Movement creates possibilities for United Nations Resolution, 64/169 declaring 2011 as the International Year for People of African Descent, to be a historic and epic event. The creative genius of the artist from Barbados, Ian Douglas, gives us what will become known as the greatest singular Pan African event in modern history. The Global Day of the Drum will assemble drummers, dancers, poets, story-tellers, and singers together this July 3-5, in order to journey back on the vibrational and rhythmic beats of the drum. In so doing we are tracing our genetic memory back through our Third Eye (pineal gland) and arousing our collective African Consciousness as we restore and re-construct our African Village. In that rhythm we initiate the process of building the New African Man and Woman. This is a synchronized event where the traditional role of the drum as a means of communication, is celebrated, even as it inspires new and more forms of creative expression. This will be a time to address and promote key issues, concerns and interests faced by People of African Descent as a Pan African Community/Village. On behalf of the International People of African Descent, our creative team is truly proud to present to you our cultural heritage,spiritual synergism. The Drum Call is about to begin, and we await your Response!!!. http://iypadcentral.igloocommunities.com/day_of_the_drum M.E.
