The National Action Cultural Committee (NACC) hosted its 31st Annual Emancipation Dinner at the Andre Kemperveen Hall, Centre of Excellence, Tunapuna, last Friday evening. The dinner, which provided the opportunity for reflection on Emancipation Day, was attended by members of the diplomatic community as well as leaders of various national institutions and social organisations. 

 

Edgar “Eddie” Van Der Hilst, a Surinamese linguist and social worker, delivered the feature address on Emancipation and Assimilation in Suriname. Guests were dressed impressively in traditional African wear and were treated to a live performance by Duane O’Connor, former national calypso monarch, as they enjoyed the many creole dishes which were served on the night.
