In Suriname the maroons are known for their wood carving skills and vibrant paintings and are a favorite among the tourists and local who buy them to decorate their homes or as souvenirs.

Their motifs bare a distinguishable African connection.

I was always amazed how with the simplest tools they seemingly effortlessly create works of art.

Here are some samples and a video explaining and demonstrating some basic technique:

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
