SPONSORS & Resources

The Louise Bennett-Coverley Heritage Council (Fla.) Inc. was launched as a channel for sharing all aspects of Jamaica’s rich folkloric culture. Through Edutainment -  education through entertainment  - the Council helps Jamaicans in South Florida celebrate, enjoy, and pass on our cultural heritage to the next generation. Jamaicans’ strong sense of self-worth and pride in our heritage is a key factor in our continuing success as a people making our way in the Diaspora.


Support from Jamaican individuals, businesses and organizations has been paramount in the success of the Council’s edutainment events. With this support, we have provided annual scholarships to talented students at the Edna Manley College in Jamaica and to students at Broward College, hosting partner in our Annual Reading Festivals. 

Thank You….Thank you……Thank you…to our Sponsors!
