    Caribbean Christmas Traditions

    Caribbean Christmas Traditions

    It's the holidays and every year the nostalgia of the Christmas past brings many long strolls down memory lane. Especially as we enjoy the Caribbean traditions that can be done in the US, mostly in the form of food.
    In this bonus episode, I’m doing an episode swap where I’ve selected an episode from one of the shows that I produce, in this case Strictly Facts: A Guide to Caribbean History & Culture for you to listen to. This episode is about Caribbean Christmas Traditions throughout the various Caribbean countries.

    Small Axe(s)

    Small Axe(s)

    In the bonus episode, of Carry On Friends we’re doing an episode swap with Style & Vibes featuring the Small Axe episode.

    Small Axe is a British anthology film series, created and directed by Steve McQueen. The anthology consists of five films that tell distinct stories about the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s. Mikelah of Style & Vibes and Rachel Osbourne of Julie Mango TV to discuss the anthology series’ as it directly relates to the Caribbean and its diaspora. We explore the name of the series, its focus around Black struggles with racism, accessibility to the full diaspora, coverage by black mainstream media and community connection.

    As mentioned I'm sharing this episode because the Small Axe series can serve as a good conversation starter with family about their immigrant experiences. I'd love to see a similar series done about early Caribbean Immigration to the U.S.

    Exploring Dual Citizenship

    One of the topics that came out of the Carry On Friends audience focus group was connecting with roots. I will talk more about the survey and focus group results in an upcoming episode. 

    But this week Ashley from the AshFiMon  & Keisha, host of The Oh Hell No Podcast join me on the podcast to discuss Dual Citizenship.  We touched on what inspired them both to consider it and how much it means to them. We also discussed dual citizenship as a consideration for small children.
