J’Ouvert was the first post-Emancipation celebration for slaves and has become quite a historic celebration in Brooklyn.

J’ouvert is celebrated in many Caribbean countries and also outside the Caribbean as part of Carnival celebrations throughout the year, with the most important celebrations taking place in locations around the world with large Caribbean expat communities, such as NYC.

Traditionally, the celebration includes calypso / soca bands and their followers dancing through the streets. The festival begins long before sunrise and reaches its peak a few hours after sunrise.

Carnival was introduced to Trinidad by French settlers in 1783, a time of slavery. Since the slaves then could not enjoy the French masked balls, they performed their own mini carnivals in their backyards, using their own rituals and folklore, but also imitating and sometimes mocking the behavior of their “masters” in the masked balls.

The origins of the street parties associated with J’ouvert coincide with their emancipation from slavery in 1838. Emancipation provided Africans with the opportunity not only to participate in Carnival, but to embrace it as an expression of their newfound freedom. Some theorize that some J’ouvert traditions are carried on in remembrance of civil unrest in Port of Spain, Trinidad, when people smeared themselves with oil or paint to avoid being recognized.
