Montserratians in New York

 

montserrat
The island of Montserrat, a British territory in the Lesser Antilles has less than 5,000 residents. For a century, Montserratians have been emigrating with many settling in the Carribean diaspora center of New York. The fathers of Q-Tip and Stokely Carmichael both came from Montserrat and Edgar Nkosi White is a Montserrat-born, Bronx-raised playwright. This mural is from an auto repair shop on Arthur Avenue and 178th Street.
