In The Know is proud to celebrate Caribbean American Heritage Month. During this month, our team will highlight a wide range of Caribbean and Caribbean American-owned brands. We encourage you to support today and beyond.
Caribbean American Heritage Month, celebrated throughout June, marks a time of celebration and appreciation for the many contributions Caribbean people have made to the United States and the world at large. From music to cuisine, Caribbean Americans and Caribbean natives enrich the lives of so many who encounter their art and experiences.
One of their most underrepresented contributions, however, is literature. Caribbean authors, for centuries, have written some of the best literary works known today. As for the present day, there are several contemporary Caribbean authors whose works deserve much more praise than they currently are.
Hailing from countries like Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and more, these authors show that no single Caribbean experience or perspective is the same.
In celebration of CAHM and beyond, check out 10 must-read books by Caribbean authors that deserve a spot on your reading list below.
