Throughout the Caribbean and particularly in the United States territories of the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) and Puerto Rico, the history and present day life reflect the rich cultural contributions of the hundreds of thousands of Africans who arrived in those regions as enslaved people during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

“It is felt and lived in the music, dance, art, and food that are all deeply rooted in African traditions.”

Step back in time to see the artifacts, hear the engaging stories and learn about the lives of these people from local historians and guides.
