Celebrating June as Caribbean-American Heritage Month, Film Director Euzhan Palcy is among the four notables of Caribbean heritage that will be honored for their accomplishments in film, business and media at the 2019 Salute to Hollywood & Excellence gala, set for Saturday, June 15 in Los Angeles. Selected by theCaribbean Heritage Organization (CHO) and the Institute of Caribbean Studies, DC (ICS-DC), the 2019 honorees are be celebrated for their pioneering professional accomplishments and their dedication to the progress of the Diaspora.

“Each year for the Caribbean Heritage Salute to Hollywood and Excellence, the selection committee combs through rumors and minutiae to identify those among the Caribbean family, in what some term America’s most powerful industry, outside of politics – entertainment, business, and media.   This year they got it right yet again,” says Dr. Claire Nelson, the architect of Caribbean-American Heritage Month and founder of the Institute of Caribbean Studies.

“The 2019 honorees are exemplars of the power of America’s immigrant journey and truly represent our pride in our contributions to American culture and society” added Marva Griffiths Herman, Founder & Executive Director for Caribbean Heritage Organization.
