"In May of 2006, the first Cape Verdean Museum in the diasporas opened its door permanently to exhibit the long history of Cape Verdeans in the US. The proejct took shape thanks to the hard work of its founding members and the many families who donated money and exhibits. Part of the museum program includes the Caep Verdean Heritage Hall of Fame, which annually recognizes outstanding Cape Verdeans. The museum is located in East Providence in Rhode Island."
