CCP engages 1st and 2nd generation of Caribbean Children and Youths (7-11 years & 12-15 years) on Caribbean and African Diaspora History during February - Black History Month. In 2021, we opened the space to be inclusive of all children with invested interest in learning about the significant contributions of Caribbean Americans.
CARIBBEAN CONVERSATIONS & CARIBBEAN CHILDREN'S STORYTIME
CCP works with a partnering organization, Raices Culturales Latinoamericanas to provide cross-cultural Caribbean/Latino digital online and in-person education Literacy on Caribbean Conversations. CCP has created a Caribbean Children's Storytime and provided Caribbean literacy and engagement, educating on Caribbean Literacy in Philadelphia Public Libraries. CCP works with Andrew Sharpe, Chairman of Authentic Caribbean Foundation, Inc, in Boston Massachusetts to design and implement a virtual learning afterschool program with Caribbean Folklore and dis-ABILITIES Inclusion. Pickney Time Storytime Caribbean Afterschool Program has existed from 2020-2021 (two seasons/24 programs). We educate, engage and empower students 2-8 years old, parents, caregivers, librarians, artists, musicians, and teachers, and work with our community partner, Leonid Johnson, Founder/Director, CommUnity of the Deaf, Inc.
