Island Origins and Island Stylee
These two popular 30-minute shows that reflect the Caribbean community’s vibrant spirit, achievements and heritage, are making a targeted connection to this prominent yet underrepresented community. Both programs will be available through December 2016.
The presenters of Island Origins and Island Stylee are Blondie Ras Productions, producers of national PBS and Create TV Caribbean cooking series Taste the Islands, and Frame by Frame Productions, 40 year veterans of the Caribbean broadcast industry.
The broadcasts are made possible because of the generous support of corporate partners Grace Foods, Donna’s Caribbean Restaurant, We Florida Financial Credit Union, The Law Offices of Levi Williams P.A., Victoria Mutual Building Society, Jamaica National and Goldson Spine, along with media partners Caribcast, Jamaicans.com, SFLCN.com and The South Florida Times.
