Following the first Tribute, Akeem, one of those wonderful, much needed, grounded community people who sees something that needs to be done and does it, became the official leader/coordinator of The People of the Sun-Middle Passage Collective and overall Tribute worker/keeper of the flame.  Akeem IS the main worker for the Tribute, and Mr. Reginald Barnes, Mr. Habte Selassie, Ms. Safiya Bandele, Mr. Bill Jones, Ms. Yvonne Bennett, Ms. Eloise Dicks, Dr. Mary Umolu, Shanto and I have joined hands as collective do-whatever-needs-to-be done members.

The cultural artists that have consistently given offerings at the various Tributes include: Shanto, Cheryl Byron & Something Positive; Maxine Foster; KowTeff; Drums & Poets Society; Wassin Roots Reggae Band; Ngoma; Children’s Legacy; Richard Green & the Crown Heights Youth Collective; New Kemit Society; Songhay Djeli; Deeper Lite; Jelani Akeem; Jibri Akeem; Positive for Children, Inc.
