Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Jul 25, 2017 - On the heels of launching a major awareness campaign in honor of Caribbean American Heritage Month, cultural venture Caribbeing is announcing the re-launch of a website they had on hiatus for a year.
The new site, located at caribbeing.com, will tell the story of the impact of Caribbeans on the Diaspora and the region, drawing attention to the contributions of creators, leaders and visionaries of Caribbean heritage. The site will also highlight Caribbeing’s mission is to illuminate the global Caribbean experience through film, art and culture.

Last month, Caribbeing partnered with LinkNYC (www.linknyc.com) to showcase Caribbean American icons past and present. The citywide campaign, promoted throughout the five boroughs via digital billboards on thousands of free WiFi and device-charging communication stations known as “Links,” featured noteworthy Caribbean Americans including Harry Belafonte, Celia Cruz, Edwidge Dandicat, Shirley Chisholm, Marcus Garvey and Junot Diaz, Notorious B.I.G, Jean-Michel Basquiat and others. The campaign garnered over four million views.
