You’ve seen the images of Rihanna’s trips to Barbados but the essence of Crop Over is more than just sexy photos. Originally as a way that slaves celebrated the end of sugar cane harvest season, Crop Over was about survival through Afro-Caribbeans traditions. In addition to Calypso, dancing, food and singing, the festivities culminate with The Grand Kadooment parade on the first Monday of August. See the beautiful Black girl magic moments from this year’s Kadooment, in the photos below!
