My family is originally from Brava Cape Verde on my mom's side and Santo Antao on my dad's. Despite Cape Verdean food, Crioulo and music being a normal part of our lives, no one has been back to CV in over 35 years.

My mother was raised there with her brother and aunts, but never went back after leaving in t he late 50's.

But this year mom. myself and my sister Michelle are going to Brava. We will see the family home there and we hope to convey what it is really like to be a Cape Verdean American going to Cape Verde today...not just a tourist on the beach.
