Here are a few of the latest Caribbean and Caribbean inspired movies that have been getting quite a bit of press this summer.
Dear People and Friends of the Caribbean,
The fear and anxiety of the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with the grief and anguish brought about by the needless and thoughtless killing of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and countless others, have forced us to cancel the 2020 CaribbeanLens Film Festival and the Salute to Hollywood & Excellence Gala.
For the last few months, the Los Angeles Caribbean-American Heritage Month Celebration committee has been working to find a way to have a virtual celebration that would capture the festive spirit of the culture. We have concluded that the colors, sights and sounds of the Caribbean are better celebrated in person.
However, the national committee is hosting a series of virtual events in which we encourage you to participate. Details are on the website at www.CaribbeanMonth.org.
Please stay safe, well and accept our sincere appreciation for your support over the years. We look forward to celebrating with you next year.
“I was born a slave, but nature gave me a soul of a free man…”
—Toussaint L’Ouverture, The Haitian Revolutionary
