Jamaica Progressive League celebrated Black History Month with their annual Cocktail Sip on Sunday, February 19th at the Elegant Rosehall on White Plains Road in the North East Bronx. The well attended event attracted many long time members and their families. The 76 year old organization which was formed on September 1st 1936 came about as a result of Jamaicans living in the US being concerned and outraged by the injustices being meted out to masses of Jamaicans on the island. This group of progressives led by Rev. Ethelred Brown, W.A. Domingo and W. Adolf Roberts in the face of great opposition and danger to their lives forged ahead and formed the organization that would ultimately change the course of Jamaica's history.
