Quem Somos

The Cape Verdean Museum is dedicated to celebrating the history and culture of Cape Verde and Cape Verdean-Americans. The institution, the first of its kind in the country, was founded in 2000 by Denise Olivera and members of the community representing Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. We have implemented our mission by creating a display with books, artifacts, pictures, stories, and more from Cape Verdeans all over the world. The museum provides an education that gives our community and others the capacity to fully appreciate Cape Verdeans’ many contributions historically, economically and socially. Our goal is to preserve and to celebrate. We are here for the community today and for future generations.
