"At the 19th annual Marion County Cultural Arts Festival, running today through Sunday in west Ocala, people will celebrate, sample and see examples of diverse cultures, particularly from Africa. Farther south, down U.S. 441, Belleview residents will celebrate their city's 123rd birthday on Saturday. While distinctly different in scope and mission, Founder's Day and Cultural Arts Festival will offer some similar trappings. Both will host food vendors, artists and craft makers. Both will fill stages with entertainment. Entertainment headliner: Founder's Day - Max Young, gospel and bluegrass Cultural Arts Festival - Voices of Africa, traditional African music"  BY JOE VANHOOSE, Star-banner

" Education is still important to VOA. "The biggest thing with inner-city kids is they don't want to admit anything moves them. Even today the sexism is rampant," says Agyiriwah, adopting a snide tone to add: "'Mmm-hmm, five women, what they gonna do?'" "Then to see them thaw: 'O my god! I can't believe how good you were!' say the presenters. 'You girls rock!' say the kids." As you read this, VOA are part of a healing weekend at Omega Institute, in Rhinebeck, NY. That's very much in line with VOA's mission, says Agyiriwah. "It's amazing to see the healing that goes on in the churches. We start beating our drums to the rhythm of the heart and build from there. It reminds me of David in the Bible — 'Make a joyful to the Lord.' The suburban Presbyterians, who refer to themselves as The Frozen Chosen, bragged about how we thawed them out."
