On Thursday, June 21, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Deputy Borough President Sandra Chapman and the Caribbean-American Heritage Month Committee hosted the 7th annual Caribbean-American Heritage Month festivities at Brooklyn Borough Hall. Check out photos from the celebration below!

Events of the day included music and dance performances, a marketplace, film screenings, an economic development power brunch and a tasting of Caribbean food.

“From Bushwick to Crown Heights, Flatbush to Bed-Stuy, Flatlands to Canarsie and East Flatbush, every square inch of Brooklyn has been enriched by the contributions of our Caribbean-American communities,” said BP Markowitz. “With hundreds of thousands of Brooklynites from the Caribbean Diaspora one thing’s for sure: whatever happens in the Caribbean shapes Brooklyn’s culture, art and food—and what happens in Brooklyn influences the Caribbean. In other words, what’s good for Brooklyn’s Caribbean Americans is good for all of Brooklyn.”
