Photographs by Diane Allford

The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) turned the first sod at their new building on East 125th street in Harlem.  Everyone gathered were enthusiastic about the ground breaking ceremony and tour of the former landmark firehouse now being used as the center’s new headquarters.  Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, President and founder, kicked off the event by thanking everyone for the new building.  She also shared information about the programs the center will be providing to the community, which includes an art gallery, community performance space, cultural workshops and educational programs.

I was there to photograph this special occasion…
