People with visible and non-visible physical disabilities are reminded constantly by advertisements that able-bodied persons are beautiful, productive, and successful. It was not so long ago that people of color experienced this lack of inclusion and were not portrayed with positive images. Unfortunately, the ongoing protests in the media make it clear that the perceptions held about People with Disabilities, as well as Blacks and other Non-White groups is still in need of change. Supermodel Beverly Johnson is our Special Guest and will share a unique perspective of how perceptions of beauty and disability can be changed. Our goal at White Apple Institute is to encourage positive images and perceptions that will enhance education and workforce success for Persons with Disability.Listen to Veterans with VET2VET Talk at the close of every show.

The first carnival was staged in 1912 during the final years of Danish occupation and lapsed during World War I. Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean.
A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival. Fun events such as a boat race, Greased Pig Contest and Toddlers Derby entertain everyone at the festivities.
A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians. Other popular events held during Carnival is j'ouvert, a morning jump up, a food fair presenting the islands’ best traditional eats and a competition to crown the King and Queen of the parade troupes.
A children's and adult’s parade close the lively month with brilliantly costumed and decorated troupes and floats.

Scripture Text: Acts 16: 14-40
Key Verse : Acts 16: 22--25
And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.
And when they had laid many stripe upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely:
Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stock.
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
