This interview is the perfect capstone to the Flatbush Business Expo Interview Series. The guest for this episode is Dr. Irish-Bramble. He is an Associate Professor at Medgar Evers College, as well as Executive Director of the Caribbean Research Center.
The Caribbean Research Center provides a variety of services including research on topics related to the Caribbean immigrant experience in New York, book and journal publishing, youth internships and sustainable development projects.
Dr. Irish-Bramble tells us more about the events that the Caribbean Research Center is planning for various groups within the Caribbean American community.
He also explains that the Caribbean American community does not have a central organizing group that can connect the community to other organizations such as the government. Due to this lack of leadership, he believes that we continue to miss out on opportunities such as grant funds for small businesses during the pandemic.
We also talk about the need for more youth training programs and youth involvement in community work.
