In celebration of Caribbean-American Heritage month, RACA has teamed up with the Blogging While Brown conference to host our first ever blog carnival.
In our original call for submissions (click here to view), we asked for submissions in one of four categories: J’Ouvert, Fetes, Playing Mas and Kiddie Carnival. Submissions are being accepted through the end of June, so if you have an idea for a post brewing, get on it!
Make sure to check this page regularly for new additions throughout June.
Also, please join us on June 10th at 8:00pm EST for our Caribbean-American twitter chat. Be sure to use the hashtag #CaribAmeriBWB to take part in the conversation.
And now, without further ado, let de bacchanal begin!
Nothing but fun, good vibes and bacchanal.
Exploring the music, dance and fashion culture of our community.
Examining the cultural, historical and political issues relevant to our community. Celebrating the good times, adventure and business of Caribbean carnivals.
