Celebrating a Creative Jamaica

October 29, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM


The Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning, the multidisciplinary arts center based in the diverse community of Southeast Queens, will host its annual Fall Benefit Event on October 29, 2019. This year the event is focused on Celebrating a Creative Jamaica, honoring a community that has produced a long and diverse list of important artistic contributors.

The Honorees this year reflect the very best in their fields – Obba Babatunde, actor, producer, director, singer, Emmy Award Winner, Tony Nominee, and NAACP Trailblazer Award recipient; Marilyn F. Booker a Morgan Stanley veteran of over 25-years, she is Managing Director at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and is head of Morgan Stanley’s Urban Markets Group; Jumaane D. Williams is the Public Advocate of the City of New York and previously served on the City Council representing the 45th District.

JCAL provides important arts programming to the immediate community and the great New York City area. It is a rich resource for individuals of all age and sits at a crossroad of international, national and local importance between two of the busiest international airports (JFK & LGA), and a leading center of finance, business, trade, and the arts – New York City.
