WHY CARIBBEAN AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH?
Caribbean American Heritage Month was established out of the need to create and disseminate knowledge about the contributions of Caribbean immigrants to America, and to be, in short, the platform for a dialogue between Caribbean peoples and the American public. Following the passage of CAHM, ICS has established the National Caribbean American Heritage Foundation to carry forth the work of its founder, Dr. Claire Nelson. Through this means, we will continue the legacy of speaking a fundamental truth to the world--that peoples of the Caribbean are positive contributors to the wellbeing and knowledge capital of the world's goods and services.
