Support the CCCADI
As one of New York City’s leading Afro-Caribbean organizations for over 40 years, the CCCADI deserves your support.
In addition to their own cultural programs, CCCADI leaders regularly help program events at other New York institutions including the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival. When we have a Caribbean problem we can’t solve on our own, this is who we turn to. It’s a small organization, but their impact is huge.
In 2008, New York City government chose the CCCADI to develop the old East Harlem firehouse (1889) into a community cultural center.
Even in the Caribbean, our culture is slowly disappearing, but it lives on at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute in El Barrio East Harlem, New York City.
