Our Nation is linked to the Caribbean by our geography as well as our shared past and common aspirations. During National Caribbean - American Heritage month, we pay tribute to the diverse cultures and immeasurable contributions of all Americans who trace their heritage to the Caribbean. Throughout our history, immigrants from Caribbean countries have come to our shores seeking better lives and opportunities. Others were bought against their will in the bonds of slavery. All have strived to ensure their children could achieve something greater and have preserved the promise of America for future generations. During the month of June, we also honor the bonds of friendship between the United States and the Caribbean countries.
Sharing our culture, connecting our friendships, having fun, creating opportunities and making a difference by intentionally playing a vital role in the Charlotte and international communities.
On people of Trinidad and Tobago decent, their families as well as members of the rest of the Caribbean diaspora living in the Charlotte metro area.
