                Proclamation 9760 of May 31, 2018

                
National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, 2018

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During Caribbean-American Heritage Month, we honor 
                America's long-shared history with our neighbors in the 
                Caribbean and celebrate the Caribbean Americans who 
                have enriched our Nation.

                Caribbean Americans embody the American spirit, with 
                their talents and hard work contributing greatly to 
                America's economy. They protect our citizens as law 
                enforcement officers, serve our communities as public 
                officials, and mentor our country's young people as 
                educators. Through their tremendous athleticism and 
                determination, they have brought pride to the hearts of 
                the American people as members of numerous U.S. Olympic 
                teams. Their leadership and resolve have made 
                incredible contributions to our society.

                As trailblazers, Americans with Caribbean roots have 
                sewn their own unique thread into the fabric of our 
                Nation. Dr. William Thornton, a native of the British 
                Virgin Islands, designed the United States Capitol and 
                is generally considered the first ``Architect of the 
                Capitol''. Jean Baptiste du Sable, the first permanent 
                resident of Chicago, was born in Haiti. Widely 
                recognized as the ``Founder of Chicago,'' his 
                prosperous trade settlement has become one of the most 
                iconic cities in the world.

                This month, we acknowledge the numerous contributions 
                of Caribbean Americans to our Nation, including those 
                of the more than 4 million Caribbean Americans who live 
                in the United States today. We are also deeply grateful 
                to the many Caribbean Americans who have served or are 
                currently serving our country as members of our Armed 
                Forces.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim June 2018 as National 
                Caribbean-American Heritage Month. I encourage all 
                Americans to join in celebrating the history, culture, 
                and achievements of Caribbean Americans with 
                appropriate ceremonies and activities.
