About Caribbean American Heritage Month

Since 2005, June has been recognized as Caribbean American Heritage Month in the United States. The U.S. has attracted many people from the Caribbean who have excelled as scholars, teachers, preachers, doctors, inventors, poets and politicians — including New York’s own Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman in Congress. Caribbean Americans come together each June to celebrate their history and culture through festivals, dancing, parades, and sharing traditional meals.
