Creating a special collection located in the center of New York's thriving Indo-Caribbean community in Richmond Hill is intended to give residents easy access to their rich and diverse history, culture and experiences for the first time.
In our extensive field research and data collection exercise during U.S. Census 2010, we found many Indo-Caribbean residents in South Queens lacked a common ethnic identity, many did not have factual information about their roots and some residents requested materials they could use to shape their Indo-Caribbean/Asian American identity. These factors have hindered the community politically and socially. This collection is intended to be a resource at the finger tips of residents in shaping their identity and empowering our community.
