Colors and Music Abound at IAHD’s Caribbean Celebration

Caribbean American Heritage Month was celebrated festively at the IAHD Bainbridge Day Program on June 28, 2017. Ms. Philipcia Joseph, the Bainbridge Program Director, organized and produced this event to celebrate the vibrant Caribbean cultures. Many staff and program participants are from the beautiful and different Caribbean islands or share a heritage with family from those places. IAHD at Bainbridge Avenue became a veritable showcase of Caribbean cultures as it was decorated with posters, flags and beautiful crafts of various Caribbean countries including Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Grenada. Each of the groups presented a poster board reflecting the various cultural aspects of each country including foods, clothing and landmarks. The groups prepared dances set to the music of the island that they showcased, and they wore costumes that reflected the island cultures as well. Read more about our lively celebration below.
