President Obama’s proclamation comes on the heels of his Jamaica visit in April where he delivered remarks during a “Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative” town hall at the University of the West Indies.
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
For centuries, Americans have been united with our Caribbean neighbors not just by friendship and economic cooperation, but also by our common values and ties of kin. This month, we celebrate the Caribbean Americans whose legacies are woven into the fabric of our Nation, and we reaffirm our belief that throughout the region, we all share a stake in one another’s success.
As partners, our nations have reached for progress together, and in our diverse cultures and complex histories, we see a common trajectory toward a more free, equal, and prosperous community. Throughout the Caribbean, courageous peoples have thrown off the yoke of colonial rule, seizing the right to chart their own destinies, and they have overcome the stains of slavery and segregation to widen the circle of opportunity for all.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2015 as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. I encourage all Americans to celebrate the history and culture of Caribbean Americans with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
When the Delta Foundation announced their headliner entertainer wass Iggy Azalea, many in the Western PA area were outraged and many LGBTQ persons of color felt especially alienated from Pittsburgh Pride. However, the selection of Azalea was just the last in a long list of incidents which leave many feeling as if the Delta Foundation doesn't care about the local LGBTQ community, but rather organizes Pride for white cis males alone. From the outrage came the organization of Roots Pride Pittsburgh.
My guest for this episode is Joy KMT, one of the co-organizers for the protest against Delta and the organizing effort to form Roots Pride Pittsburgh. We will talk about the Iggy controversy, and how a grassroots oriented Pride will serve Western PA's LGBTQAI com munity.
Here are some links for more about Roots Pride Pittsburgh:
