The wildly popular Miami and South Florida History (AMH 2079) class at Miami Dade College (MDC) is available once again for history buffs on Thursday evenings beginning Aug. 30 through Dec. 20, 2012 at the Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami. Notable historian and MDC faculty member Dr. Paul George will teach the class, which will include classroom lectures, visits to historical libraries, repositories and exhibits, video and slide presentations, and tours of Greater Miami’s historic neighborhoods.  

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (7W-6T-7L) play against the Atlanta Silverbacks (3W-5T-11L) a second consecutive week on Saturday, Aug. 4, at Silverbacks Park with kick off set for 7:30p.m. EDT. This is the third meeting of the season and the first away from Lockhart for the Strikers who earned a win and a draw from the first two games this season. The Strikers are in fourth place in the NASL Standings, four points behind Puerto Rico and one point ahead of Minnesota Stars FC. 

“We obviously know Atlanta well having played them last week,” said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. “We’ve got to fix some defensive leaks we had last week. I think offensively we’re playing pretty well and we have to focus on the positives from the last couple of games. We know this is an important game for our mentality and knowing that we need to start winning some games on the road. Our intention is to go up there and come back with three points.

South Florida's diverse cultures will have a chance to unite through the "One Love, One heart and One Music" festival this month.

The event, featuring some of the stalwarts of reggae/dancehall music, including Cocoa Tea, Nadine Sutherland, Leroy Sibbles, Spragga Benz and Capleton, is scheduled for May 13 at the Cruzan Amphitheater in West Palm Beach.

Gil Noble Dies

Gil Noble, a legendary television broadcaster of Jamaican parentage, died last month in New York. The former host of New York WABC Television's award-winning, public affairs program "Like it is", a show dedicated to showcasing black leadership and the African, Caribbean American experience, was 80.

Noble was the son of Jamaican immigrants Rachel Noble, a teacher, and Gilbert R. Noble, who owned an auto repair shop in Harlem, New York. In 1975, he began hosting "Like it Is" until a stroke last year forced him to quit the program. He received seven Emmy Awards for "Like It Is".
