Thank you for checking out the Charlotte Chapter of the Carolina Caribbean and African Association.  I've been in the Charlotte area for almost 10 years and noticed that unlike NYC, Toronto, DC and even Atlanta, that the Caribbean and African communities are very fragmented.  This is our attempt at changing that.

We want to create and environment where people can link up, have a good time and build relationships.  The group focus is on both on African and Caribbean cultures.  Expect to see the following:

- Caribbean and African Festivals

- Traveling

- Concerts

- Monthly outings

- Cooking opportunities.

** Please remember that our group is only successful if you participate.  If you're looking to "get up, get out and do something" this is the group for you.  If not, you might want to join somewhere else.  We regularly audit the group and remove inactive members.  There's also a 3-strike rule for  those who RSVP and either are "no shows" or habitual members who cancel their RSVP's at the last minute.  Please don't RSVP because you'd "like" to come out but that you are coming to the event.  We typically post events within a 2-week window.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
