CaribNation was created to fill a void. In what is considered the most powerful city in the United States, and a major media market, the substantial Caribbean population was almost invisible. Our perspective on important issues and their impact had no voice. Therefore, we set out to inform, educate and entertain Caribbean and American viewers, through programs that would enhance intercultural relations and instill deep cultural pride, while perpetuating the rich Caribbean culture.
The mission of CaribNation Television is to inform, educate and entertain Caribbean and American viewers through a serious, provocative television program which highlights, explores and explains the eclectic ethnic, economic and cultural heritages of Caribbean people; unites them across geographical, linguistic and ideological boundaries; and addresses all aspects of Caribbean culture, politics, and people, by openly discussing their nuances and related issues, thereby enhancing intercultural relations and instilling deep cultural pride.
