MHACASA (Mount Holyoke African and Caribbean Student Association)

Mount Holyke African and Caribbean Student Association, MHACASA, was formed in 1992 to put first the issues concerning the African and the Caribbean region. Since then, MHACASA has evolved into an organization which not only seeks to do this but to also break down commonly held stereotypes about — and bring awareness to — our people and our home countries. We hold our annual African Caribbean Day and Awareness Week, where we showcase our rich heritage through passion and talent to the Mount Holyoke College and Five College community. MHACASA is a home away from home, where tight bonds are formed with fellow sisters of a shared culture, history and unique set of issues. It is also a group of young, vibrant, beautiful and intelligent women from the African continent and the Caribbean region who are dedicated to maintaining cultural ties and increasing awareness on the Mount Holyoke Campus and Five College community. MHACASA is not just open to those from the African continent and Caribbean region; it is open to anyone with a vested interest in issues concerning these places.
