MACPRI Oware Day 2011: "Brother Oji's Finest Hour"

4 days to go...

before the MACPRI Toronto International Oware Tournament and Family Fun Day in partnership with the Africentric Alternative School in Toronto, Canada. Our principle sponsor is Evans Electrical Services.

Once again Adisa S. Oji (aka Brother Oji), the visionary behind the African Image Revolution will step out from the backstage of the Toronto community with another one of his landmark historic events which answers the Honorable Marcus Garvey's question. "Can we do it?"

The Oware Family Fun Day is an event intended to bring the Toronto African Canadian Community and friends together in a unique way with great possibilities. If you have never had the opportunity to see Brother Oji's leadership style manifested, this coming Saturday at the Africentric Alternative School will be a wonderful opportunity.

While registration for the Oware Tournament is officially closed, the day is packed with many great activities for the whole family to participate in. Please see the Inside Toronto link below for more details and if you have a Share Newspaper, event details can be found on the In Focus page.

Players who have registered for tournament and want to ensure that they will be able play, must arrive at the school at 10:00 AM. You will not be able to play if you arrive late and a refund will will be provide. This tournament will truly be an inter-generational extravagance as we will have participants ranging in age from 12 years to 80 years old sitting and playing together. There will also be an Open Oware Session for those interested who are not in the tournament.

There will be a special Oware Day Commemorative Program Booklet available: everyone will get a free copy made possible by our advertisers. Additional copies will be $2.00 each with proceeds in aid of the transition rites ceremony for Mama Apana, the old lady from Zobisi Village, Bolgatanga, Ghana West Africa. She died at approximately 120 years old. Mama Apana is the signature image from the 2007 "Mother God" photo-exhibition celebrating MACPRI's 20th Anniversary of the African Image Revolution.

The Creator and our beloved Ancestors be praised!
See you Saturday

I AM Brother Oji
