The Race, Ethnicity, and Social Inclusion Unit and Office of Caribbean Affairs of the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs co-hosted a special dialogue that linked the United Nations' and Organization of American States' designation of 2011 as the International Year for African Descent with Caribbean American Heritage Month.
Representatives of the diplomatic community, academicians, and cultural activists participated in this dialogue at the Ralph Bunche Library at the U.S. Department of State. The event, featuring Dr. Claire Nelson of the Institute for Caribbean Studies and Dr. Howard Dodson and Dr. Sylviane Diouf from the Schomburg Center for Research on Black Culture, discussed the linkages among the African Diaspora, the Caribbean, and the United States.
