June is National Caribbean American Heritage Month

President Trump became the third president to issue a proclamation making June Caribbean American Heritage Month.

The proclamation states "Every day, Caribbean Americans help make America more prosperous and secure. Our Nation is particularly grateful to the many Caribbean Americans who have served and are currently serving in our Armed Forces, protecting our Nation, and promoting freedom and peace around the world. Today, more than four million Caribbean Americans live in the United States and continue to contribute to a vibrant culture that enriches our Nation.

Check out the carousel at the top of our blog page or at the bottom of The Yocum Library's Home Page for some of our holdings related to Caribbean-American heritage.
