The West Indian Culture Club hosted its “Cultural Explosion” event as part of Baruch College’s “Caribbean Week ‘Back to The Islands’” festivities. The event took place on May 10 during club hours and consisted of eating, dancing and listening to traditional Caribbean music.
Caribbean Week kicked off with an opening ceremony called “Monday Madness” and continued on to the next day with a food fair that gave students a taste of the unique cuisine belonging to each Caribbean island. Another event held during the week was “Wild N’ Out,” a Caribbean-themed improvisation comedy show accompanied by music.
As explained by WICC president Kalifa Chapman, the major goals of Caribbean Week’s events were to change perspectives about the Caribbean, informing people that the Caribbean is formed of many islands and that it is “much more than just beaches.
The members danced around and invited audience members to join in on the fun.
The week’s events were put together by the Caribbean Student Association, the Student Organization of Caribbean Appreciation, the West Indian Culture Club, the Undergraduate Student Government and the Office of Student Life.
