Caribbean American Museum Benefit Concert & Dinner

Caribbean American Museum Benefit Concert & Dinner

Come out and enjoy a good night of entertainment with Reggae, Rap/Hip-Hop, Steel Drum and R&B music brought by several artists. Some of these artists include the Jamaican-American Rapper, C.O.L.I. (5-time Award winner, “Reggae Singer of the Year,”) King Mellowman, and Aaron Parrott (STELLAR Award nominee, EMMY Award winner and America Got Talent finalist.) The HNB Foundation invites everyone to attend and donate to the Museum & Culture Center Building Fund.

This event is to raise funds to purchase land space in the city to build a Cultural Center and Museum. This project is for the country’s millions of Caribbean and Caribbean-American nationals identified in the 2014 US Census report.

This project is for the country’s millions of Caribbean and Caribbean-American nationals identified in the 2014 US Census report. The event will feature Jamaican-American Attorney Ernest Jarrett as Guest Speaker. Mistress of Ceremony is Ms. Sonya Harris, “Caribbean Woman of the Year, 2003.”

Millions of Americans with ties to the Caribbean responded to census takers as America being their “place of birth,” but not listing the origin of their Caribbean- based parents. Throughout the country, there are possibly 20 to 40 million 2nd and 3rd generation Caribbean-American nationals living here. Many were born in the U.S. and a large number migrated and became ‘naturalized citizens,’ and so simply identified themselves as “Americans.” Notably, former US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, former US Attorney General Eric Holder, as well as superstars Alicia Keys and actress Kerry Washington and Jada Pinket-Smith, and a member of the Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton, (Secretary of Treasury) and many others have roots in the Caribbean.
