WASHINGTON, United States — Four Jamaicans are expected to be honoured at the 26th Annual Caribbean American Heritage Awards (CARAH) scheduled for Friday, November 22 in Washington, DC in the United States.

CARAH, which is the premier event to honour emerging stars and experts of Caribbean descent within diverse fields, celebrates excellence in health care, public service, science, business, and corporate leadership, the Institute of Caribbean Studies said in a news release.

The institute noted that among this year's honorees are Jamaica's Professor Dr Kingsley Chin, MD, who will receive the Excellence in Medicine award and Michael Lee-Chin, who will receive the Marcus Garvey Lifetime Achievement award for his corporate business services.

Also to be awarded are Donnette A Cooper, who will be presented with a Forerunner award for her artistic contribution in quilts, and Roy 'Gramps' Morgan, who will receive the Outstanding Contribution to Reggae Music award, the institute added.

Five other honourees are to be recognised -- Haiti's Evens Charles, Guyana's Dr Andre Fenton, Trinidad and Tobago's Dr Winnette Mcintosh Ambrose, Martinique's Euzhan Palcy and Dominica's Erwin Raphael.

The event will be hosted by ABC TV news anchor Maureen Bunyan and WAMU host Kojo Nnamdi, both of Caribbean heritage, and should feature performances from the IMAGE Band, a Caribbean band in Washington DC, the release said.
