Boston's Trinidad style Carnival: Founded in 1973 by Ken Bonaparte Mitchell 1942-2008

Home | Contact Us | About Us | 617-512-7803

Founder/CEO: Michael C. Smith

Michael founded Leonard Communication several years ago and published the now defunct publication "Caribbean Voice Magazine". In addition to his interest in publishing, he is an avid photographer. Michael has been photographing Boston's Trinidad Style Carnival for over 20 years.(Photo Gallery)  He has also photographed interesting sites around New England, as well as locations across the USA.  He cherishes the opportunity he had to photograph the inauguration and swearing in ceremony of Massachusetts first black governor Deval Patrick 1/4/2007.

My current goals are to become the president of Boston’s Trinidad style carnival organizing committee “CACAB” and institute the changes necessary for our carnival to become the best Trinidad style carnival in North America. How? By finding the organization a home, form a better working partnership with the Bandleaders/Artisans, institute a proper functioning Public Relations and Marketing group and create a scholarship program to assist college students.

Michael C. Smith President Boston Carnival Village

Michael was invited to join the Caribbean American Carnival Association in 1996.He served two years as a recording secretary and helped with annual operations for the next eight years. Upon leaving the organization, he organized and conducted the first survey on Boston Carnival in 2005 and published the results (Boston Carnival: Photographic Essay and Survey). Additionally,  he also did the first photography exhibition on Boston Carnival entitled "Streets of Color"; and was instrumental in organizing the first "behind the scenes" interview with WCVB TV Channel 5 anchor and reporter, Pam Cross (Ancrum Strategic Advisors) . Michael was featured on Urban Update on WHDH TV Channel 7- Host: Alberto Vasallo III where he and other guests spoke about Boston's Trinidad Style Carnival and the need for support and sponsors. He was also a guest on City Line hosted by Karen Holmes Ward WCVB TV5 , Boston. His most recent exhibition “Kids Must Play” is the second in 10 years.

Today,  Michael continues to promote Boston’s Trinidad style Carnival and is actively encouraging businesses to sponsor the  Carnival bands. He is also the publisher of  Boston Carnival Village magazine and author/webmaster of this website. Michael graduated in 1983 from Northeastern University Boston with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electronic Engineering. #Bostoncarnivalvillage (Updated 8/11/2017)
