"Virginia Capers, winner of the Tony Award 1973 for her lead role in the Broadway play, "Raisin in the Sun" is seen aboard shortly before her departure, after a recent vacation in Jamaica. At right is Eastern Custom Service Agent, Jimmy Davis. 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."
