  1. It’s amazing how some things have survived with the African American cultural traditions from Africa despite every attempt to crush our identity…little things that we never knew or have forgotten were brought with us from Africa.

  2. JM Eagle, the world’s largest plastic pipe manufacturer, has launched a major initiative with Columbia University’s Earth Institute to provide safer water to more than 11,000 of the poorest people in Senegal. JM Eagle has donated and delivered over $800,000 worth of high-strength polyvinyl chloride (PVC) water pipe which is being installed in several Millennium Villages-projects designed to end extreme poverty in rural communities throughout Africa. The company also looks forward to expanding its current work with the Earth Institute into many more Millennium Village projects over the next five years to bring both potable and non-potable water to some of the poorest people in the country.
