Ms. Capers visited Jamaica with her mother, Mrs. Janie Capers of Woodside, New York and Ron Powell, publisher of 'Soul Journey Magazine' - a new black-oriented travel and leisure publication, based in Washington, D.C. Her many activities here included attending a special performance of the NDTC; guest of movie star Calvin Lockhart at a private screening of his new, soon-to-be-released movie, "Every Nigger is a Star," which was filmed recently in Jamaica; shopping in the straw market; and of course, plenty of autograph signing."
