The Belize African Connection launch the BAC-20-PEACE Exhibit

Today is the start of Black History month and the Belize African Connection (BAC) is celebrating with the launch of the “BAC-20-PEACE Exhibit”. The art display is a collection of works from members of the BAC, Raymond “Napthy’ Jones and Fahima Barnett. It comprises forty crocus-cloth paintings, crafts, traditional creole musical instruments, and handmade clothing. Today, through a partnership with the Image Factory Art Foundation, the display was opened for public viewing in downtown Belize City. Jones, one of the BAC’s founders, and his daughter Maryam Abdul-Qawiyy explained that the pieces of art were crafted over the past 20 years and honour influential figures in history who fought for the rights and freedom of others. 

The BAC also operates the “Drums Not Gun” movement that was previously headquartered at their arts and crafts souvenir stall in Belize City.
