The annual celebration, which is in its 10th year at the church, highlights a different Caribbean island each year with music, singing, dancing, and historical information.
Last year more than 500 guests attended the celebration focused on Barbados.
Carvell Bennett, a church deacon whose mother is from Cuba, says the people of Cuba are still suffering from injustice, inequality and lack of jobs, and the theme of the celebration is aptly titled "The Struggle Continues."
