Celebrate Caribbean-American Heritage Month with “Island Imprint: A History of the Caribbean Community in Broward County,” a fine art and historical retrospective produced in conjunction with Island Syndicate, on display June 1 – 29 at History Fort Lauderdale.

The exhibit, part of a multiyear initiative celebrating Broward County’s Caribbean heritage, traces the Caribbean community’s roots through a variety of fine art mediums, historical news clippings, archival photos, memorabilia and artifacts colorfully displaying the diverse influence of island culture on the vibrant fabric of Fort Lauderdale. Works featured include Paul Campbell’s (Jamaica) Fervent Hope and pieces from Karl ‘Jerry’ Craig (Jamaica), and photographer Silvi Lizama (Cuba). The installation will also include a storytelling aspect of the shared Caribbean communities’ history via personal memories and mementos allowing for an immersive foray into local Caribbean-American culture.

“Island Imprint” is a 2019 – 2020 initiative featuring a series of events and installations paying homage to Caribbean culture, traditions and history. The project celebrates the diversity of West Indian heritage that merges in Broward County with interactive, educational entertainment including historical exhibitions, cultural displays, theatrical performances, cuisine, music, artisan crafts, and more, presented in settings that show the multicultural splendor of Broward County.

“Island Imprint: A History of the Caribbean Community in Broward County” is produced by Island Syndicate whose directors include the visionaries behind the recent “Taste the Islands” special event, television series and Island Origins Magazine. Support has been provided by the Community Foundation of Broward, the Helen and Frank Stoykov Charitable Endowment Fund, the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation, Ann Adams Fund and the Mary and Alex Mackenzie Community Impact Fund.
