Proudly Celebrating Caribbean American Heritage

June also marks the beginning of a month-long celebration of the Caribbean American culture. At The Council, we are proud to honor the rich heritage, profound contributions, and enduring spirit of the Caribbean American community. 

We can see the influence that Caribbean American culture has had on our country—from the rhythmic beats of reggae, soca, and calypso; the delicious food; government; and sports.  

Cicely Tyson was born to Nevisian parents and was a pioneering actress who broke barriers and garnered acclaim for her powerful performances and advocacy for racial and gender equality in the arts. She was selective about the roles that she took, often turning down parts that she felt were demeaning to black people. She sought to highlight the dignity and humanity of her character. 

Marcus Garvey was a Jamaican political leader, publisher, and orator who became an advocate for Black nationalism and Pan-Africanism. One of his most known achievements was founding the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL) in 1914. This organization aimed to unite all people of African descent and advocate for their economic and social upliftment. 

At The Council, we are committed to fostering an inclusive business environment where minority businesses can thrive. We invite everyone to join us in celebrating Caribbean American Heritage Month by supporting Caribbean-owned businesses, learning more about their rich cultural heritage, and attending events to meet and network with more businesses. 

Happy Caribbean American Heritage Month!
