Carib Week: A Celebration of Caribbean Heritage and Culture

Submitted by Brittney McNab ’14:

“From Whence We Came”
There is a common ground that holds together the diverse populations of the region. The West Indies is home to various ancestral roots which all contribute to a very complex and heterogeneous space. People of the Caribbean are very connected to one another through their shared experience of relocation and post-colonial recovery. In our celebration we hope to highlight the multiplicity that helps to make the region what it is today.
Please join us in our celebration.
