Past Events


This past Monday, August 22nd, Coconut Grove was officially renamed “Little Bahamas of Coconut Grove.”

The designation and renaming of the area “Little Bahamas of Coconut Grove recognizes and honors the history and contributions of Bahamian immigrants and others who migrated to the area and were instrumental in the formation of the City of Miami. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and was founded before Miami was incorporated Congresswoman Frederica Wilson recognized the area leadership for their commitment to preserving the rich Bahamian culture and announced that the designation has been documented in the Official Congressional Record. This step was taken to preserve and ensure that the contribution and accomplishments are memorialized.

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson further endorsed this initiative by securing and presenting $6 million dollars toward the development of a museum for the area. Among those in attendance for the celebration of this historic event were South Dade NAACP’s Education Chair, Dr. Freddie Young, and South Dade NAACP’s Housing Chair, Ms. Carolyn Donaldson, both of whom played a role in getting the city renamed.
