The Association of
Caribbean has con-
veteran Julian Rogers
on being appointed
to the Most Excellent
Order of the British
Empire (MBE) for his
work as a media
practitioner in the
In a release, the
ACM praised Rogers
as a long-standing member and leading broad-
caster and a trainer who had an impact on a
whole generation of broadcasters and journalists
in many Caribbean countries.
Rogers served in several capacities across the
Caribbean for 50 years, starting at age 16 at Bar-
bados Rediffusion Ltd. He also spent a number
of years working in television in T&T.
His current position is managing director of
Mediarogers.ag inc, a company he established in
Antigua and Barbuda to manage Rogers Radio
and Rogers TV operations and provide media
The release said in recent years he had con-
centrated on turnkey media operations with spe-
cial emphasis on radio and television stations.
It added: "In addition to consulting on media
projects, Rogers served as an adviser to the Uni-
versity of the West Indies on the development
of the degree programme offered at the Caribbean
Institute of Mass Media and Communications
at Mona, Jamaica. Rogers was among the insti-
tute's first graduates in 1975.
"Julian has served as moderator and facilitator
of several international and regional meetings
under the auspices of such organisations as the
United Nations, Caricom and Cariforum, the EU,
Crimestoppers International, the Caribbean
Bankers Association and the Central Bank of
Barbados, among others."
Rogers was also a member of the Prime Min-
isterial Sub-Committee of Caricom on the imple-
mentation of the Caribbean Single Market and
Economy (CSME) and was the voice of the public
awareness programme for the launch of the
Caribbean Court of Justice.
Six months after South Africa officially
ended its period of mourning for late
President Nelson Mandela, a promise by
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar
was realised as the media launch for the
national commemoration of the life and
work of the world's greatest freedom
fighter took place.
In launching the initiative at the Nation-
al Library, Port-of-Spain, on Tuesday,
Minister of National Diversity and Social
Integration Rodger Samuel likened Man-
dela's 95-year lifespan to a relay race, in
which the time had come to pass on the
baton of justice, dignity, equity and integri-
ty.He hoped citizens would emulate Man-
dela's teachings, thus transforming T&T's
landscape into one of love, peace, tolerance,
forgiveness, respect and justice.
The minister confidently said "we can
be that," as he encouraged everyone to
pray earnestly for the positive transfor-
mation of the nation.
The week of activities will take place
from July 13-18 and will include a citizen
education campaign on the life and work
of Mandela, who lived by the tenets of
volunteerism and service to mankind.
The event was conceived following Per-
sad-Bissessar's return from Mandela's
funeral in South Africa last December.
Samuel said the events decided on by
the committee were aimed at sensitising
the population about Mandela's values,
life, work, his fight for freedom and accla-
mation for justice.
Revealing his wish for the commem-
oration to be used as a means of trans-
forming the hearts and minds of citizens,
especially the youths of the nation, Samuel
urged the corporate sector and the media
to get more involved in the process.
Endorsing the list of planned events,
South African High Commissioner Mau-
reen Modiselle said organisers should pro-
ceed along the lines of 67 Minutes for
Mandela, which would recognise the years
during which he made an imprint on the
Urging inspired people to ensure they
followed an ethical framework to change
the world for the better, Modiselle revealed
that as part of a collaborative effort
between T&T and South Africa, 30
optometrists had agreed to host a free
vision-screening exercise in Mafeking,
Mayaro, on July 20.
She said anyone found to need corrective
surgery during the event will get it free
of charge. She said 75 pairs of free glasses
will also be distributed to people in the
community as part of the outreach pro-
