'How to Win the Money Game' by Daryl Harper


Money and Finance is a subject that many people are either never taught in school, they don't understand or, more often than not, they shy away from. This lack of knowledge and financial illiteracy has left many people struggling to get out of the rat race- the monotony of just surviving and living from pay cheque to pay cheque. This is your opportunity to learn some simple steps that can impact and change your life dramatically.


It's time to learn how to


Daryl Harper is a dynamic, energetic, infectious speaker, who always delivers from the heart and aims to provoke you into taking positive actions in the right direction. While teaching at a college, Daryl's passion for mentoring, equipping and coaching grew. He noticed that there was nowhere in the educational system that empowered people in the area of finance and there was a MASSIVE gap. An interest in financial education, personal development and leadership was birthed and he later found mentors and coaches who were very successful in the financial service arena. He went on to get trained and qualified to deliver financial education. Daryl has been working with Genistar since 2008, he was the youngest ever promoted Executive Vice President in the company and has won many company awards - (MVP) Most Valuable Player, broken many company records, won holidays and spoken, empowered and impacted thousands of people. The breakdown of his parents' 18-year marriage with financial worries being at the centre, has left Daryl with a constant hunger, drive and passion to change families' lives and impact generations to come.



Film Screening: The Black Candle: A Kwanzaa Celebration



The Black Candle is a landmark, vibrant documentary film that uses Kwanzaa as a vehicle to explore and celebrate the African-American experience. Narrated by world renowned poet Maya Angelou and directed by award-winning author and filmmaker M.K. Asante, The Black Candle is an extraordinary, inspirational story about the struggle and triumph of family, community, and culture.


Filmed across the United States, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean, The Black Candle is a timely illumination on why the seven principles of Kwanzaa (unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith) are relevant today. With vivid cinematography and an all-star cast that features NFL Legend Jim Brown, Hip Hop icon Chuck D, Kwanzaa's founder Dr. Maulana Karenga, artist Synthia Saint James and many others, The Black Candle is more than a film about a holiday: it's a celebration of a people!


'Kwanzaa: A Celebration of Family,Community & Culture' by Andrew Muhammad


Kwanzaa brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense.

Andrew has also authored his Award-winning book ‘Free Your Mind' which he sees as his way of giving back to the youth the gift of Self Knowledge and dignity.
