On Saturday April 26, 2014 The GWB Commission held its 6th Annual Green, White & Blue Ball commemorating Sierra Leone’s 53rd Independence Anniversary at the Fillmore in Silver Spring.
In keeping with the Ball’s commitment to celebrating our community leaders, awards were presented to the following individuals; Zainab Bangura United Nations Special Representative on Sexual Violence (Lifetime Achievement), Bajah and Dry Yai Crew (Arts and Entertainment), and Memuna Mansaray (Sports).
Actor Duain Richmond of FELA was the Master of Ceremonies. He joined talented artists Heaven Jay and Abizzy for an ensemble live performance. DC Metro Area’s DJ No Name and DJ Lebbie played hometown hits that got everyone dancing, but it was a masquerade of traditional jollay dancers that was the highlight of the evening.
