“As February is Black History month, Soull Starlight and Yukiko Yeshto (both residents of South Corsica) collaborated for an event around the Eatonville Living History Museum. The museum is named after a fictional Black settlement town described in the book Their Eyes Were Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston, and is an example of the self-sufficient towns established after the Civil War in the United States.

The series of events include a guided tour/performances by spoken word artists at the Museum; a fashion gallery at the Little Kenya Animal Sanctuary with information about characteristic patterns and fabrics, and a formal banquet at Little Kenya Restaurant where attendees can learn more about the African dishes chosen for the virtual menu.

While Soull and Yukiko initiated and organised the event, it is actually a community effort supported by various people from different projects, such as the Sisters In SLthe Corsica South Coasters, and the Embassy to Corsica (Hon. Ambassador Jack Vincent).

Each of the event venues offers a stamp to be collected for the Bellisserian Passport. Each event (the first of them today) will be staged at two different times to suit visitors from US and European time zones.
