National Caribbean-American Heritage Month

Ten years ago this month, 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.  On February 14, 2006, the resolution passed in the U.S. Senate. Since that declaration, the White House has issued an annual proclamation recognizing June as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

TWU Libraries Reference Librarian Jimmie Lyn Harris has compiled a selection of library and other resources--including print and electronic books, videos and websites--on a dedicated Subject Guide for you to enjoy this month as we honor the lives and legacies of all Caribbean-Americans.
