Friday's Fabulous Flicks

The American Foundation for the University of the West Indies (AFUWI) held their 14th Annual Legacy Awards Gala in New York City at the Pierre Hotel. Uptown Magazine Editor-at-Large Star Jones served as Mistress of Ceremonies. 
 Entertainment executive Suzanne de Passe became the first woman to receive the ‘Bob Marley Award’ – the organization’s highest honor. Funds raised from this gala support scholarships at the University of the West Indies.
