The public is invited to attend an‘emergency’ meeting of the Caribbean Affairs Advisory Committee, in the City Hall of Miami Gardens, Florida, today, Wednesday August 29, 2012, at 5:45 PM, to express community support for the proposal that the city of Miami Gardens recognize Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Mosiah Garvey by naming a street in their honour.
Your support is needed; to convince the Caribbean Affairs Advisory Committee (which is empowered by the Miami Gardens Mayor and City Council to make recommendations regarding matters in the interest of the Caribbean-American residents of Miami Gardens) that such an honour is appropriate, timely, and would be appreciated.
The City of Miami Gardens is the largest Black-majority city in the state of Florida, and the third-largest city in Miami-Dade County, with an estimated 80% Black population. Caribbean-Americans comprise an estimated 40%-45% of Miami Gardens residents, and own many of the businesses.
Please join us in Miami Gardens tomorrow, and ask your friends to join us, and support the call to honour these great Jamaican-Caribbean-Americans, Amy and Marcus Garvey.
CITY HALL ADDRESS:
1515 NW 167 Street, Miami Gardens
(the entrance is on the west-bound service road that runs beside the 826 expressway)
