Caribbean American Heritage Month

June is National Caribbean American Heritage Month, a time to celebrate the incredible contributions of Caribbean Americans to our culture, history, and society. This tradition started with the first proclamation signed by President George W. Bush in 2006 thanks to the efforts of Dr. Claire Nelson and the Institute of Caribbean Studies, who lobbied for recognition of Caribbean American achievements.

Throughout June, DC Public Library will be lifting up stories that showcase the vibrant experiences of Caribbeans and Caribbean Americans. Join us as we delve into this rich heritage!
