Caribbean Heritage Festival at Borough Hall Brooklyn. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2012 v6n1 p0621

On Jun 21, 2012, the 7th Annual Caribbean Heritage festival in Brooklyn's Borough Hall was filled with CACCI members (I am a member click here), Brooklyn Borough officials, Caribbean consular staff and persons with links to the Caribbean.

Our keynote speaker at the morning's breakfast was Lowell Hawthorne, founder and CEO of Golden Krust, which he refers to as GK. GK is a manufacturing operation with 1700 stores, and a huge creator of jobs and wealth in Caribbean communities. I met Lowell at the 2009 Christmas party, quiet, thoughtful man from Jamaica. What impressed me about him then is that he was not surrounded by handlers or sycophants, and is clearly a serious man of deep faith that translates into understanding that he has been given the ability to work hard for good. Listen to him speak to other audiences about his ascent from poverty in Jamaica and in New York through to today, click here.

In the afternoon we went outside and sat on the steps of Borough Hall and watched dancers and singers, and the biggest star was Mighty Sparrow.

Mighty Sparrow

Mighty Sparrow was born Slinger Francisco in 1935, in Grand Roy, Grenada.

Grenada is an Olympic gold medal-winning country in the Caribbean click here.

Mighty Sparrow grew up in Trinidad and was given his nickname because he moves when he sings and plays instruments. He has been frequently recognized as a master of Calypso.

We heard on Sep 10, 2013 that he is seriously ill.
