The Jamaica Cultural Alliance (JCA) recently held its 17th Annual Tea Party at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. Sponsored by the Jamaica Tourist Board, the event, which serves to celebrate aspects of Jamaican culture, honored Reverend Prebendary Rose Hudson-Wilkin with the JCA Trailblazer Award. The award is accorded to notable individuals who set high standards while charting distinguished courses for those of Caribbean Culture and History. Born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Reverend Hudson-Wilkin is Chaplain to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and holds the title as the 79th Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons. Her appointment to this office is a historic one, as Reverend Hudson-Wilkin is the first woman and the first person of color to serve in this capacity.
