Trinny Cee: Dancehall queen

Trinny Cee: Dancehall queenIn Minnesota, the world of event promotions is pretty small.

Actually, that goes beyond the state. For those who are truly committed to being a promoter, it seems in one way or another, we are all connected. And let's be clear, there are promoters and then there are event producers. Promoters are fly by night. They come and they go. They are the ones who just hand out flyers and hope. Event producers are dedicated. They are obsessive. They know every aspect of the show or event they're producing. They're travel agents, they're the marketing department; they're ad hoc sound engineers, hosts and chauffers. An event producer in Detroit will know about an event producer in Dallas, so when Minnesota's Trinny Cee got a call from Jamaica, it was confirmed, she wasn't just some promoter – she is an event producer at the top of her game. Simply put, Trinny Cee is Minnesota's "Dancehall Queen."

Historic NCDC gets makeoverFor far too long the drabness of the building located at 1000 Plymouth Ave. N. on Minneapolis' north side did not match the joy and wonderful works that were going on inside.

But all that changed thanks to the help of the Greater Twin Cities United Way and volunteers who collectively donated 700 hours to giving the home of Catholic Charities' Northside Child Development Center (NCDC) a vibrant makeover. The exterior facelift and interior renovations were a part of the United Way's #Next100 campaign. The #Next100 campaign is a celebration of the United Way's 100th anniversary. During the centennial, the United Way is seeking to engage 100,000 volunteers nationwide.

As Tuskegee Airmen fade, an effort to save the legacy growsMore than 16,000 Tuskegee Airmen made history, but now only about 250 remain. They see each other mostly at funerals these days.

When the heroes returned some from overseas after World War II, they were still treated as second-class citizens in the South. They were simply known as participants in the Tuskegee Experience – pilots, engineers, mechanics, instructors and other support personnel enrolled in an Army Air Force program to train Black aviators at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama from 1941 to 1946.
