Poetry And Drumming Festival
The National Cultural Council and The Cultural Division presented DOMFESTA 2012 with the theme “through culture we build a progressive and peaceful society.”
Chief Cultural Officer Mr. Raymond Lawrence says the poets have been working and performing for several years. Mr. Lawrence says there are a number of people in Dominica engaged in wonderful and positive activities and he fails to understand why there has been an increase in crime and violence.
Poet Mr. Delroy Williams wrote an interesting poem about the importance of black people sticking together and standing up tall.
Mr. Williams mentioned in the poem that black people are too caught up to read in-between the lines and realize the right paths to follow.
Mr. Williams encourages the public particularly the youths to get off the streets and engage themselves in positive activities.
