BROOKLYN - Borough President Eric Adams has declared Caribbean Heritage Month in Brooklyn for the remainder of June.

Brooklyn is home to the largest population outside of the Caribbean region.

There was also an East Flatbush-based organization to highlight Caribbean culture called Sesame Flyers International Incorporated, featuring a steel pan player and costumed dancers.

A calendar of events has been created including a film festival, art exhibit, marketplace, concert, symposium and a taste of the Caribbean.
