Bookfest Adds Inspirational Spice to Summer Fun

Some of the country's top African American authors who have made a mark in the literary world will gather in Greater Fort Lauderdale at the African American Research Library and Cultural Center for the South Florida Book Festival July 17-18 to introduce their latest work and tell other aspiring writers and book lovers how they did it.

Award-winning journalist and talk show host Tavis Smiley will be one of the featured authors making a special appearance at the "Evening to the Stars," a dressed-up
The African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC) is taking a high-tech approach to introduce visitors to the history of the library with a new theme park-quality animatronics exhibit unveiled earlier this month.

Funded in partnership with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau (GFLCVB), the exhibit will remain on permanent display in the library's entrance to the gallery which features revolving shows by artists from the African Diaspora. It is dedicated to Samuel F. Morrison as "a visionary" who helped to

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau is gearing up to salute Black women in March with a lineup of events featuring some of the top movers and shakers in the U.S. today.

This year's event features a high-powered roster of top-level African American women in global finance, leadership

Yes, the last six months may have been on the hot side, but we all know that the next six months is going to be absolutely perfect. Residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County look forward to this time of year all summer. Of course, so does the rest of the planet!

What are the transportation logistics for tourists and business travelers, visiting Fort Lauderdale? In Broward County, not every hotel, resort or motel provides courtesy shuttle bus service from the airport. However, from renting a bicycle, waving down a trolley to embarking on a boat, Fort Lauderdale journeys plenty of convenient transportation options.

For those visitors, planning to travel beyond the Fort Lauderdale beach and convention center in Broward County, a dozen car rental companies reside in the parking lot at the Fort

South Florida chapter leaders of Kappa Alpha Psi have pledged support for the development of a permanent home in Fort Lauderdale for the American Tennis Association (ATA), the oldest sports organization for African Americans in the U.S. The fraternity is also partnering with the ATA and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau (GFLCVB) for the Centennial Celebration of the ATA in Fort Lauderdale in 2016.

Kappa Alpha Psi is linked with the legacy of the ATA, which has been a training ground for many of the world's top players

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority (AKA) has been linked with the success of Black tennis since the founding of the American Tennis Association (ATA) in 1916.

Alpha Kappa Alpha chapter leaders in the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County area have announced support for making the area the new permanent home for the ATA with the

May 15: "Best" Broward

Thursday, May 15, 2014 10:08 AM by Guest Blogger

In all things, "best" is a subjective matter. The best vehicle for dragging trash to the Southwest Regional Landfill isn't the best vehicle for dropping your daughter off at the prom. In this post, we explore five of what may be Broward County's top restaurants, all suited to very different occasions and experiences. When you've been to those that best suit your purposes and culinary needs, we're sure you'll be calling for the services of a moving company in Fort Lauderdale!

Sunny, it's gridlock out here
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea...

Blue skies overhead, my buddy Susan and I slip into our scuba gear and shuffle off the beach into the ocean. Divers-down flag in tow, we make the easy five-minute surface swim out to the first reef, just a hundred yards from shore.

We descend 20 feet, to a chaotic scene. Over to Bob, for the traffic report...

It's eight a.m. The locals rolled out of bed just two hours ago. But it's already bedlam. And still ten minutes before the traffic

Feb 6: Intern Learning the Ropes

Thursday, February 6, 2014 11:09 AM by Guest Blogger


It has been three weeks since I've started my internship at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. Since I've been here I have learned a lot about how things work in the real world; especially in the fields of tourism, event planning, and hospitality. Which, for any undergraduate reading this, I must say is completely different from college life. In college you go to classes, have multiple breaks in between, hang-out with friends, go home in the middle of the morning, sleep all day, etc. It's a really laid back lifestyle you
