Learn about the cultural significance, updated parade route, and public safety initiatives of J’Ouvert, the pre-dawn Caribbean street festival that occurs in the hours leading up to Brooklyn’s West Indian American Day Carnival. Panelists include Yvette Rennie, President of J’Ouvert City International; Council Member Jumaane D. Williams; and Shanduke McPhatter, CEO of G-MACC Inc. (Gangstas Making Astronomical Community Changes Inc.). The forum is followed by a Q&A with experts and includes a multimedia presentation.
