CARICON 2023 TO BRING GLOBAL LEADERS TOGETHER IN CELEBRATION OF CARIBBEAN AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH
Themed "The Future is Now,” CARICON 2023 will provide extensive educational programming, keynote speakers, workshops, panel discussions with top leaders, a book expo, live entertainment, and special performances aligned with the multifaceted dimensions of Caribbean heritage. By day, attendees will enjoy a full day of curated programming and an evening of special guest performances by top artists such as KG Superstar.
International storyteller Dr. Amina Blackwood Meeks will kick off the weekend presenting to students at Marcus Garvey Elementary on June 2, 2023. Nestled in South Los Angeles, the school was named after Jamaica’s first National Hero and Pan-Africanist, Marcus Garvey.
We are thrilled to be back on the ground and to bring CARICON to the campus of USC," said the conference Director, V. Steve Russell. "This is a great opportunity for emerging and established writers to share their stories, ideas, and experiences and to inspire the next generation of Caribbean voices."
Free and open for all to enjoy, CARICON 2023 seeks to disrupt the narrative and bring all communities together for a dialogue that encourages the acquisition of cultural knowledge directly from the source.
