We look ahead to the 5th annual African Diaspora Dance and Drum Festival of Florida. Its mission is to preserve African-American heritage here — and does so in a way everyone can enjoy— through food, music and dance. This year’s theme is “bridging cultural gaps”. We focus on why the festival is significant, and what it has to offer. We are also joined in the studio by 4 performers — dancers and drummers who will be participating in next month’s event.
The Greater Miami Athletic Conference Football Officers Association has been serving the student-athletes of public and private schools in South Florida for more than 75 years.

They are a group of dedicated referees and officials, but their goals of community service take them way beyond the football field. We focus on their mission and how you can help them achieve their goals.
