February is Black History Month and Schneps Media takes pride in this by honoring and by the significant contributions to New York City made by people of Caribbean descent.
Join us in applauding the honorees at the Annual Caribbean Impact Awards which will be hosted virtually and in a live broadcast this Thursday, February 18th, 2021 at 7 pm. Caribbean Life’s annual Impact Awards recognizes the achievements and contributions of outstanding individuals of Caribbean background who have created the most impact in their respective career fields — from healthcare, the arts, to advocacy, entrepreneurship, and much more. By establishing themselves in these lanes, they’ve helped continue opening the path for incoming immigrants and inspiring generations to come.
At this year’s event, the Emcee will be Ruschell Boone, a three-time Emmy nominated and award-winning reporter and anchor at Spectrum News NY1. Boone, an esteemed Jamaican-born reporter and journalist from Spectrum News NY1 has covered some of New York’s most major news stories. Boone believes in giving back to the community and to inspire the youth to pursue their passion.
Please join us and celebrate these great honorees.
