June Proclaimed Caribbean-American Heritage Month


WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama proclaimed June 2010 as the National Caribbean-American Heritage month to celebrate the history and culture of Caribbean Americans and their link with the United States, the White House today announced.

"Our nation is linked to the Caribbean by our geography as well as our shared past and common aspirations," Obama said.

The United States has received many immigrants from Caribbean countries seeking better lives and opportunities.

Throughout the history of the U.S., Caribbean immigrants have made immeasurable contributions through their diverse cultures and the preservation of the promise of America for future generations.

Obama remarked that the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti showed the bonds of friendship and support among the U.S. and Caribbean countries. He also noted that the Haitian-American community was devastated and full with grief over the loss of loved ones as they help rebuild their homeland.

"The United States has proudly played a leading role in the international response to this crisis," the U.S. President said. "As Haiti recovers, we will remain a steady and reliable partner."

Finally, Obama recognized the important role that Caribbean-Americans play in the current American society. In politics, science, law enforcement, entertainment or sports, the Caribbean-Americans have become an essential part of the American culture.

"They have become leader in every sector of American life while maintaining the varied traditions of their countries of origin. Caribbean-Americans enrich our national character and we are very proud they are part of the American family."
