Poverty in Paradise Documentary

April 28, 2011

Good Afternoon,

The Coalition for the Protection of Children, in conjunction with Afflare Films, cordially invites you to the World Premiere of our documentary “Poverty in Paradise: the Price We Pay“.

The documentary explores the causes and consequences of the widening gap between Bermuda’s wealthy and poor, the struggles families face in providing for themselves and their children and the consequential spiral in crime plaguing the community. In 2000, 50% of Black Female headed households with children were living at or below the poverty line and increasingly families are finding it impossible to afford basic necessities such as rent, food and electricity bills. The documentary gives a voice to the lives of homeless, low-income and working class mothers, addressing assumptions held by many as to why particular people live in poverty. Our hope is to affect the social and political will, transforming the way Bermudians understand their community and influencing the necessary policies to put Bermuda on a more positive and prosperous path for all.


Below is the trailer for the film. Please take a moment to watch.


Show Times:

Saturday April 30th at 8:30pm, BUEI

if Saturday sells out, a second showing will become available for Sunday May 1st at 9:00pm.

We hope you will join us to view this important film.

CURB at the White Privilege Conference

April 11, 2011

Cordell W. Riley and Lynne Winfield of Citizens Uprooting Racism in Bermuda (CURB) will be presenting a workshop titled “This Land is Whose Land? Gaining Economic Citizenship in Paradise” at the upcoming White Privilege Conference to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota from April 13-16 at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel. The workshop will focus on the historical development of White affirmative action in Bermuda since settlement in 1609, and the legal restrictions put into place to prevent Black economic empowerment. Furthermore, while some progress in economic development by Blacks has occurred, the workshop will reveal that the gulf between Bermuda’s two dominant races remains wide. Finally, participants will learn why the sole piece of legislation introduced by the first, Black-majority supported Government in 2007 led to White opposition and was eventually scrapped.
