Caribbean Women's Social and Cultural Initiative celebrates 25 years

The Caribbean Women Social & Cultural Association of America (CWSCAA) celebrates its 25th anniversary with a flag-raising event to hoist the United Peoples Flag for consecration of the United Peoples Inclusive.

The event takes place Sunday, June 26, 2011, at the Global Caribbean Representation (GCR) Center at 1601 Nostrand Ave. in Brooklyn.
