South Florida Organizations Partner in Unity
New Alliance Invites Public to Join the Movement

With an eye toward inspiring unity and cooperation across the public, MCCJ met with South Florida community leaders and organizations to form an alliance that will embody the belief that we’re better off united, regardless of race, color, religion, origin, and political affiliation. Yearning for the days when people had constructive conversations despite having differences and determined to bring those days back to vibrant life, this newly formed alliance has planned a march for May 15, 2022, at 3PM in Downtown Miami, and it is inviting the community to join in their efforts.

The main thrust of “We Are United” is to show that we are proud of and united in our differences and what makes us unique; that we wish to operate with compassion, care towards one another, and remain supportive of each other with respect and in celebration of these differences. It aims to tackle hate and divisiveness, by clearly demonstrating that people are better off united. Organizers plan to make this march an annual event. Over ten entities, including the Office of Mayor Danielle Levine Cava are encouraging additional organizations to join the alliance in hopes of repairing the currently frayed social fabric. “Sadly, we’re at the point where almost anything can turn into a topic of division, and it’s only getting worse,” states Matt Anderson, MCCJ executive director. “We profoundly believe every person has the right to live in dignity and enjoy respect, regardless of race, gender, faith, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability or socioeconomic status. For that reason, we aspire to make Miami a model of intercultural understanding.”

On May 15th, MCCJ and this newly formed alliance will assemble at The Freedom Tower at 3:00PM. The march will officially begin at 3:45PM. People are expected to make it The Underline (right near Brickell station) by 4:40PM. At that point, there will be a performance by Guitars Over Guns followed by speeches from key figures. The event ends at 6PM.

WHEN:
Sunday, May 15, 2022, at 3PM

WHERE:
Meet at Freedom Tower in Downtown Miami at 600 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132. The march will end at The Underline at SW 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33130

REGISTRATION:
The event is free, but people are asked to register via Eventbrite at https://bit.ly/38EtmAV

WE ARE UNITED PARTNERS:
American Jewish Committee, Books & Books, COSMOS, Jewish Community Relations Council of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Love the Everglades, MCCJ, Miami-Dade College, Miami Herald, Office of Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, The Underline, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami, and YWCA.

ABOUT MCCJ:
MCCJ, Inc. was originally founded in Miami in 1935 as the Miami Branch of the National Conference of Christians & Jews. Later, the group was renamed the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews. In 2011, in recognition of its embrace of people of ALL faiths and secular backgrounds, the organization formally changed its name to MCCJ, Inc. Today, it goes beyond its original intent by creating a haven for dialog, training inclusive leaders and promoting understanding for all faiths, races and cultures through education, advocacy, and conflict resolution. It hosts the oldest continuous interfaith clergy dialog in the United States and presents prejudice reducing programs in local high schools, among other activities. For more information, please visit www.miamiccj.org or call 305-755-6096. Find them on Facebook and @MCCJ_Miami on Twitter.

ABOUT FRIENDS OF THE UNDERLINE:
Our mission is to deliver and activate a 120-acre, world-class linear park spanning 10-miles below Miami’s Metrorail that will transform regional mobility and celebrate diversity, culture, and lifelong learning. Through innovative urban trails and creative programming, we are connecting people to their environment and each other to create a safe, healthy, equitable, and sustainable community.

Mr. Hospitality is thrilled to announce ‘A Night at Sahara’ at El Tucán, a Pride-month dinner party pop-up to celebrate the life and legacy of Leslie Cohen and her legendary New York City nightclub, Sahara. Notably, the first bar in New York City owned and operated by women for women, Sahara was also the first upscale women’s club that showcased women in art, politics, and music.

“Sahara represented a milestone along the arduous and ongoing road to gay and lesbian liberation, a turning point between the representation of gay people as perverse and sick to the beginning of acceptance and inclusion.” – Leslie Cohen (1947 – 2022)

Beginning at 7PM, on Wednesday, April 27th, El Tucán, the vibrant Brickell supper club will be featuring LIVE music, seductive performances, and an exclusively curated menu, poised to be nothing short of incredible. To commemorate this lively evening with the utmost glamour and extravagance it deserves, El Tucán will be hosting the ever-so iconic Carmen Carrera – TV personality star and transgender rights activist – who will take the stage to enchant guests with a stimulating burlesque performance. Throughout the night, DJ Willy Monfret will be spinning upbeat house music, keeping the party going until late in the evening. A special prix-fixe menu ($65pp+) will be offered during the night, which will include highlights such as the Wagyu Beef Tataki, Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon, Spicy Beef Tenderloin, and Truffle Bucatini Pasta, among many more El Tucán favorites. Diners are welcome to order a la carte as well.

In support of our LGBT+ community, a portion of the night’s proceeds will be donated to Equality Florida, a non-profit organization, dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB), a nonprofit organization committed to preserving and cultivating the arts in Broward County, will present its fifth annual “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” special event on Monday, January 10, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. This elegant black and white themed cocktail party at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale will feature exclusive exhibit tours, live entertainment, light bites and a decadent dessert table.

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience The Art of Assemblage, Margarita Cano: 90 Years and Jared McGriff: Where We Are You at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale on a private tour by Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale.

The Art of Assemblage features sculptures composed of found objects and repurposed materials in inventive and fanciful ways. In the practice of assemblage, materials such as scrap metal, broken shells, tattered fabrics and discarded toys are salvaged and brought together in unexpected combinations, creating poetic abstractions of everyday life. The exhibition is drawn primarily from the Museum’s collection and includes recent acquisitions to the Museum’s permanent collection by artists John Outterbridge, Vanessa German, Pablo Cano, and a collaborative work by Jorge Pardo and Jason Rhoades. It also includes works by Christian Holstad, Ernesto Neto and Jessica Stockholder, and significant artworks from the Museum’s collections of African and CoBrA art. This exhibition is curated by Ariella Wolens, Bryant-Taylor curator.

Margarita Cano: 90 Years celebrates Miami-based artist Margarita Cano’s remarkable long life and records her transition from Cuba to America, scientist to art services librarian, and finally, to a painter of dreams. This exhibition will encapsulate Cano’s multi-disciplinary practice as a self-taught artist whose creativity has manifested through wondrous miniature books, votive portraits, landscapes paintings, prints and photographs. Cano’s art is a portal into a celestial world in which memories are transformed into sacred visions of life and loss. This exhibition is curated by Bonnie Clearwater with Ariella Wolens. This exhibit is sponsored by Rita Holloway.

The first solo museum exhibition of Miami artist Jared McGriff, Where We Are You, showcases his dreamlike paintings that remain timeless, even as he integrates his family’s history of migration from the rural south to the rural west of Oklahoma and California into the realities of the present. The exhibition’s title, Where We Are You, encapsulates notions of African Ubuntu philosophy, where the individual becomes the whole through the experience of the group. McGriff’s compositions of single and grouped figures embody the guiding principle for many early cultures that each individual’s actions impact others and society. This exhibit is curated by Bonnie Clearwater and sponsored by Sandra Muss.

Champagne and cocktails, culinary delights, and selections by Israel Charles, arts and music program director at Dillard High School, will add to this festive event. Guests are encouraged to dress in their favorite black and white cocktail attire.

Tickets for “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” are $75 per person and are available at fundingartsbroward.org. For more information, please call (954) 353-7673 or email fundingartsbroward@gmail.com.

Tri-Rail, South Florida’s premier commuter rail system, invites vocally inclined children ages 5 to 17 to audition for “South Florida’s Kids Got Talent,” a singing competition held as part of Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day.” Young singers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are encouraged to audition for the chance to compete in the judged event. Auditions will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 11, at Galleria Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Boulevard).

The singing competition is open to solo or group singers who are South Florida residents. Each act will have a four-minute opportunity to perform at the auditions. Judges will select the acts that will compete in the final competition, which is scheduled for Saturday, February 19, during Tri-Rail’s 13th annual “Rail Fun Day.” This year’s competition winner will receive a $500 grand prize, a photo shoot with composite cards courtesy of Posche Models & Talent and a professional studio recording session with MikeSoperMusic.

In 2019, 10-year-old Carly Cantor of Wellington was crowned the winner of Tri-Rail’s “South Florida’s Kids Got Talent.” Cantor’s stage presence and performance of “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5 won over the crowd and judges.

Over the past 10 years, Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day” has welcomed more than 23,000 families. The event has become an annual tradition as a free afternoon of interactive games, arts and crafts, and entertainment while promoting the benefits of riding the commuter rail system.

Each year, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival (CGAF) expands its collection of artists to provide people with a broader perspective and endless layers of artistic meaning. Festival organizers theoretically began putting paintbrush to canvas as they started planning the 58th iteration of the festival. They weren’t afraid to “Paint Outside the Lines” with the addition of newer elements meant to offer inspiration in a more inclusive and interactive festival that’s accepting of all art forms, allowing guests to be in touch with all their senses. “This festival is rated among the top-three outdoor art fairs in the country by Sunshine Artists. Their metric is based on actual art sales and voted by the artists themselves,” said Nathan Kurland, CGAF chair.

Coconut Grove will be infused with over 300 jury-selected artists on Presidents’ Day weekend 2022. Large-scale art activations spanning across 15 mediums, ranging from classic and contemporary to the unconventional and eccentric, will line the streets of Coconut Grove overlooking Biscayne Bay. “Our devotion to the celebration of art has always been front and center as we bring together the finest artists to showcase their work. All art lovers and collectors are encouraged to take the opportunity to interact with the artists and take home a creation that will not only enhance their home but will forever conjure the memory of their time at our festival in the charming village of Coconut Grove,” said CGAF president and CEO, Monty Trainer.

World-renowned artist, David Le Batard, better known as Lebo, has been invited to be the 2022 commemorative poster artist. His ability to pull from a broad spectrum of creative mediums including, murals, paintings and sculptures, makes him the ideal creative choice to convey this all-encompassing experience.

Tickets go on sale online on Black Friday, November 26, 2021. The 2022 sponsors include Bayside Marketplace, Blue Moon, Peroni, LaCroix, NBC6, Telemundo51, MDC – Miami Culinary Institute, The Ritz-Carlton, Hotel Arya, The Mutiny Hotel, Picture Perfect, Miss Merch, Coconut Grove Sailing Club, Refine Health & VitaliTEA. The following new elements will be part of the experience:

• The Stacks – In place of a traditional stage at Peacock Park, the festival has built a six-container-high pyramid serving as a crow’s nest for the resident DJ and musical performances. The Stacks double as a giant canvas where muralists will be painting these containers throughout the festival weekend, giving the music a unique and colorful interactive element.

• The Inner Artist – Who doesn’t want to tap into their inner Picasso? That’s where the Inner Artist experience at Regatta Park will quench their thirst for creative expression. It’s where people can create their own art, encounter unique art styles and immerse themselves within the art for that perfect Instagram-able moment.

• The Collectors’ Club – If you are serious about art, you need to be part of this club! The Collectors’ Club is the oasis within festival grounds, offering complimentary cocktails and bites, an art concierge and private restrooms – all nestled in air-conditioned comfort; access to The Collectors’ Club will be limited and available online only.

• Kitchen Combat – Gone are the days of boring cooking demos. Kitchen Combat pits the best chefs and mixologists in the Grove against chefs from other parts of South Florida in what can only be described as “The Grove versus the World!” The combat arena will feature giant LED screens to watch all the head-to-head action in hi-definition. If you’re lucky enough to be in the audience, you will be given the task of voting for the winner of each round of combat.

WHEN:
Saturday, February 19 – Monday, February 21, 2022.

WHERE:
The streets of Coconut Grove.

TICKETS:
Admission is $20 per person per day and can be purchased at www.cgaf.com.

World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) and Galleria Fort Lauderdale will kick off World AIDS Day on December 1 with Rock the Ribbon, a public event designed to raise awareness and voices in unison for global health!

Rock The Ribbon will commence at 8:30 a.m. with a gathering of elected officials including City of Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Special performances by the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating, Camie Liz and DJ Aulden Brown will add flair to rock the crowd. The event will take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at WAM’s Rock The Ribbon page.

The public is also invited to view a portion of the AIDS Memorial Quilt which portrays powerful stories of activism, love, healing, hope and remembrance to connect the story of HIV/AIDS to the important issues impacting our nation, today. The quilt is on display through Dec. 10.

According to National AIDS Memorial, 40 years into the AIDS pandemic, more than 700,000 lives in the U.S. have been lost to AIDS and more than 1.1 million people live with HIV and an estimated 1 in 7 people do not know they have HIV. In the last figures reported in 2018, Black/African American gay and bisexual men account for the largest number of new HIV diagnoses.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt was conceived in November of 1985 by long-time San Francisco gay rights activist Cleve Jones. On October 11, 1987, the Quilt was displayed for the first time on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., during the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It covered a space larger than a football field and included 1,920 panels. Today, the AIDS Memorial Quilt is an epic 54-ton tapestry that includes nearly 50,000 panels dedicated to more than 105,000 individuals. It is the premiere symbol of the AIDS pandemic, a living memorial to a generation lost to AIDS and an important HIV prevention education tool. With hundreds of thousands of people contributing their talents to making the memorial panels, and tens of thousands of volunteers to help display it, the Quilt is considered the largest community arts project in history.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt Display and World AIDS Day kickoff ceremony are sponsored by Galleria Fort Lauderdale, Our Fund, Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus, Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward County Cultural Council, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau and Florida Department of State, Division of Arts & Culture.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, has set the date of Saturday, October 30, at 6:30 p.m., for its 25th annual History Makers fundraiser at the Superyacht Pavilion facility on the south grounds of Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina (2301 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale). The special event, taking place during this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, will honor the Denison Family (Denison Yachting), Broward County yachting industry forerunners, with a History Makers Pioneer Family Award and the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) CEO Phil Purcell will accept a Legacy Business Award for the organization’s 60+ years of industry and service at the event that commends individuals and companies who have made an impact on the growth of the City of Fort Lauderdale.

Denison Yachting (formerly Broward Marine) and its workforce were largely responsible for much of the marine industry that developed over the course of their 50 years of yacht construction that started on the south fork of the New River in Fort Lauderdale. In 1948, on their honeymoon, Frank and Gertrude Denison decided to buy a boat yard on the New River and shortly, thereafter, became the largest employer in Broward County, as well as the largest defense contractor in Florida. The contracts they secured for the construction of US Navy minesweepers during this time period led to the construction of large motor yachts. The Denison’s yachting business, launched in the early 1950s with the construction of the largest yacht built in the US, post WWII, the ALISA V, eventually led them to become most prolific large yacht builder in the world in 1993. The first of only two yacht builders in the US to have received this recognition.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF), now celebrating its 60th anniversary, is the largest marine trade organization in the Southeast United States. It is dedicated to promoting, protecting, and growing the 111,000 middle class jobs in Broward County and 142,000 jobs regionally in marine businesses promoting boating lifestyles from family cruising and fishing to yachts and the goods and services that sustain them, driving the economic output to $8.9 billion in Broward County and $12 billion regionally. Created in 1961, the nonprofit trade group is focused on the sound growth of the marine industry in the South Florida Region to benefit its members, their customers, communities and the environment. The Association has over 500 members in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties and is the owner of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Through the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, advocacy efforts, programs and services of MIASF have combined to raise the professionalism of the industry and awareness of its impact and contributions by the public, elected, and regulatory officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Members have fostered a reputation for the region to be known as the goods and service center of the world for the yachting and marine community.

Previous History Maker honorees have included The Forman Family, “Alligator Ron” Bergeron, City Commissioner Steven Glassman, developer Dev Motwani, H. Wayne Huizenga, Chris Evert and Jimmy Evert, The Sun-Sentinel, Winterfest and Susan and Buddy Lochrie.

History Fort Lauderdale’s 2021 History Makers fundraiser is presented by Safe Harbor Lauderdale Marine Center, Roscioli Yachting Center and Ocean Wine & Spirits. It is sponsored at the platinum level by Bradford Marine, Rick Case Automotive, Informa Markets and Tavistock with additional support from Hudson Family Foundation, JM Family Enterprises, Inc., Lank Oil, Lauderdale Marina, Lawless, Edwards & Warren, Rybovich, Tripp Scott, Derecktor, Gray Robinson, Westport Yachts, International Yacht Brokers Association, Merrimac Ventures, Engineered Yacht Solutions, Westrec Marinas, J.R. Dunn, Alley, Maass, Rogers & Lindsay, P.A., Teakdecking Systems, Nautical Structures and Moore & Company.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Cesar A. Becerra on the next August 12 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at https://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBecerra.

Cesar A. Becerra is the author of Orange Blossom 2.0, a soon-to-be-released novel debuting in conjunction with the City of Miami’s 125th anniversary. Orange Blossom 2.0 is based on Becerra’s decades of research that tells the true story of the founding of Miami and the remarkable contributions of landowner, developer and savvy businesswoman Mary Brickell who seems to have been largely overlooked and overshadowed in the pages of our past. The book is available for purchase at www.sofloweird.com/product-page/orange-blossom-2-0

A South Florida historian who’s taken part in chronicling and sharing the stories of the region for more than two decades, Becerra is the author of half a dozen books ranging from hiking the Appalachian Trail to the logging history of the Big Cypress Preserve. Becerra is an avid explorer who drove through all 50 states in a one-year road trip to rediscover America for The Travel Channel. He has also hiked the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, in 388 days through 14 states and 4 seasons. Becerra is former publisher of The Everglade Magazine, an award winning publication printed during Everglades National Park’s 50th anniversary. He has walked, hiked, slogged, canoed, kayaked, airboated and swamp buggied all across the Everglades. In 1997, The Miami Herald named him an “Everglades Evangelist.” Cesar’s love for the past and sense of adventure is where his two worlds unite. He has a penchant for hidden history and knows no boundaries or distances when it comes to searching for it.

Becerra joins previous novelists Dr. Joe Knetsch and Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

Make Music Miami, the annual celebration of music on the summer solstice, returns this year on Monday, June 21 with dozens of free, virtual and in-person outdoor concerts, music lessons, jam sessions and other exciting music-making events, spotlighting music’s power to connect, comfort, unite and uplift. Miami is among the 90+ U.S. cities hosting major celebrations, in what has become a worldwide phenomenon observed by hundreds of millions of people in over 1,000+ cities in 120 countries. Safety protocols will be in place following local requirements, including mask-wearing, social distancing and limited capacities and group sizes.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Miami celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of ability. Reimagining their cities and towns as stages, every kind of musician – from bucket drummers and opera singers to hip-hop artists and marching bands – pours onto streets, parks, plazas, porches, rooftops, gardens, beaches and other public spaces to celebrate, create and share their music with friends, neighbors and strangers. Due to the pandemic, last year’s celebration was largely virtual, but many in-person events will return in 2021.

For more detailed information, visit makemusicmiami.org. Finalized programming will be posted here the week of the event.
