"Nossa Língua Portuguesa:
a herança e o futuro dos nossos filhos na América".

A manutenção do idioma simboliza a manutenção da identidade. Nas sociedades globalizadas a manutenção cultural e linguística individual ou de um grupo se torna cada vez mais imprescindível e necessária. O vínculo com o futuro é óbvio: maiores possibilidades de trabalho, principalmente com o desenvolvimento do Brasil, pertencendo ao grupo do BRIC.

Dear CCBU

CCBU was delighted to present 2 great programs this past March and last weekend: the series "BOTEQUIM CULTURAL" that closed this Tuesday, April 13, and the Brazil Fest at the West Dade Regional Library as part of the Art of Storytelling festivities, this past Saturday, April 10.

It was our privilege to share different aspects of the rich Brazilian culture with the multinational Miami community.

On behalf of the Brazil-USA Cultural Center, I want to thank our members who, with their annual contribution make these programs possible.
