This week, my daughter’s school marked Black History Month by dressing up in costumes of heroes. I dressed her as Ida B. Wells, the pioneering journalist and sociologist. Perhaps a bit heavy for a preschool but they don’t know that.
Mango season is on the horizon. Green baby mangoes are starting to appear.
A fascinating take on scamming and crime in JA.
Idris Alba filmed part of his newest film here in Jamaica awhile ago. My neighbor actually met him and said he was lovely. Check out the trailer here for the movie.

My friend Karen produced this wonderful film- if you are in Jamaica check it out tonight.
If you tuned in last night to watch 18 Degrees North, apologies. A message from Zahra:
All, I have some pretty disappointing news. The episode of 18 Degrees North is not airing tonight as advertised by us. A situation popped up late last week that we weren’t able to rectify before we hit the air. We are working to sort it out and will update you with the new broadcast date as soon as we know more. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience.
Just a reminder that 18 Degrees North will return this Sunday, February 18 at 9 p.m. on TVJ. Check out a preview here.
