TRIBUTE TO LEONA BRADY WATSON -- HON. VICTOR O. FRAZER (Extension of Remarks - August 1, 1996) [Page: E1424] --- HON. VICTOR O. FRAZER in the House of Representatives, Wednesday, July 31, 1996
"Mr. Speaker, Leona Brady Watson was born on the island of St. Croix. At the tender age of 3, she began her education, which involved walking from Estate Two Friends to Frederikdsted where she attended St. Patrick's School. After finishing the third grade, she journeyed to the United States, and completed her formal education there."
"Upon returning to St. Croix in the late 50's, Mrs. Watson came home with a special yearning for her culture. She spent many years learning about what was a dying art in the Virgin Islands, the art of cariso, from the elders, particularly the ones on the north side of the island and the Frederiksted area. Leona was able to attain and maintain our delicate culture through their stories, soups, and music of days gone by. Leona continues to be honored by various cultural organizations as a tradition bearer for her untiring contribution to the cultural growth of the Virgin Islands, and the knowledge of the history of our beloved homeland."
"Some of Leona's famed works include: Quoted in 3 published books; actress in the film, The Story of Cariso, nationally acclaimed; performance in numerous stage shows, on island and abroad; participated in the 24th Annual Festival of American Folklife, the Virgin Islands; program sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution and the Virgin Islands."
"Leona is also a highly respected herbologist who has been asked most recently to participate in cultural exchange between Africa (Senegal), China and Switzerland."

He is an ambassador/volunteer with the Clinton Foundation. Mwansa recently registered a new company dealing in import & export company, it will trade between America and Zambia/Africa. The company will be an activist company in the sense that it will actively promote gender equality for African women in the U.S. and in Africa. We will help African women by finding markets for their products here in the U.S. Mwansa is very supportive of African initiatives here in the U.S. such as the "SendBetty2School" campaign by George Mtonga.
Mwansa is a committee member for the business committee in SOZA ( Society Of Zambians in America). He believe in gender equality because it the key/answer to Zambia's economic problem. Mwansa says "As a nurse, I want to use my knowledge and experience to help some clinics in Zambia e.g. on pediatrics and maternity issues. For my business that I just registered, I will be supplying 3 things: 1) African clothes, 2) handcrafts, jewelry and gifts, and 3) African dried foods and vegetables. I'm interested in Zambian politics, and also American politics, so I'm always comparing the standards between Zambian and American politics."

Saint Brigid of Ireland -- Daughter of Dubtach, pagan Scottish king of Leinster, and Brocca, a Christian Pictish slave who had been baptized by Saint Patrick. Just before Brigid’s birth, her mother was sold to a Druid landowner. Brigid remained with her mother till she was old enough to serve her legal owner Dubtach, her father.
She grew up marked by her high spirits and tender heart, and as a child, she heard Saint Patrick preach, which she never forgot. She could not bear to see anyone hungry or cold, and to help them, often gave away things that were Dubtach’s. When Dubtach protested, she replied that “Christ dwelt in every creature”. Dubtach tried to sell her to the King of Leinster, and while they bargained, she gave a treasured sword of her father‘s to a leper. Dubtach was about to strike her when Brigid explained she had given the sword to God through the leper, because of its great value. The King, a Christian, forbade Dubtach to strike her, saying “Her merit before God is greater than ours”. Dubtach solved this domestic problem by giving Brigid her freedom.
Saint Brigid's feast day is February 1st.

Tonight I'll break down the surprising Bulls win over the Golden State Warriors, perhaps the best team in the NBA. Derrick Rose had a tough night but made the shot that mattered. I'll also break down the Blackhawks loss to the L.A. Kings last night and give my thoughts on the state of the Hawks, plus their budding rivalry with the Kings. I have two questions for you tonight: Are you giving credit to Rose for the game-winner, or judging him for the 11 turnovers? And, which team do you see going further in the playoffs, Bulls or Blackhawks?
