Welcome to the Bahamian American Association


The Bahamian American Association, Inc.
Founded by 10 Men who had a Vision of Perseverance, Tenacity & Courage



Dear Bahamians, Bahamian Americans and Friends of the Bahamas:

We are grateful for the insight of the early founders of the Nassau Bahamas Association whose vision of PERSEVERANCE, TENACITY, and COURAGE, led to the creation of an association wherein a sense of community and Bahamian Identity in New York was fostered and maintained.

The members of BAAI are committed to growing this sense of Bahamian Spirit and community in the Tri-State area and particularly, in Harlem where the Association is housed. We invite you to join us in this endeavor. With your help, we can keep the values and visions of our founding fathers alive.

My fellow Bahamians and Bahamian descendants, you are the vital link in the chain of the Association’s success. Come help us make a difference as we grow our community and share a taste of “Bahamiana” with the world. Friends of the Bahamas, you can help us reach higher heights. Come and share with us this opportunity to strengthen the economic, educational, and cultural ties as well as, the bonds of friendship that exist between our nations.

On behalf of the officers and members of BAAI, we thank you for visiting our website and hope it adds a ray of Bahamian sunshine to your day.

Come out and join us at the Bahamas House for monthly meetings the third Saturday of each month.
