Florida and Afro-Caribbean peoples have shared historical ties which were established when Ponce de Leon first arrived on the Florida shores. This presentation examines the history and unique characteristics and settlement patterns of Afro-Caribbean peoples who settled in Florida from the Spanish colonization period to the present. It covers some of the Spanish, English and French-speaking Caribbean islands and the significant contributions those groups have made to Florida’s cultural, economic, political, social, and environmental development.
