NATIONAL CARIBBEAN AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH - JUNE
National Caribbean American Heritage Month (NCAHM):
In June 2005, the House of Representatives unanimously adopted H. Con. Res. 71, sponsored by Congresswoman Barbara Lee, recognizing the significance of Caribbean people and their descendants in the history and culture of the United States. The Proclamation was issued by President George Bush on June 6, 2006. Since the declaration, the White House has issued an annual proclamation recognizing June as Caribbean-American Heritage Month. This year marks the tenth anniversary of June as National Caribbean American Heritage Month. The campaign to designate June as National Caribbean American Heritage Month was spearheaded by Dr. Claire Nelson, Founder and President of the Institute of Caribbean Studies.
Since 2013, Caribbean Community in Philadelphia has celebrated National Caribbean American Heritage Month in downtown Philadelphia.
