JNA's 50th Anniversary Dinner & Gala in Silver Spring, Maryland

The Jamaican Nationals Association aims to unify, foster, and promote the welfare of all Jamaicans and persons of Jamaican heritage in the Washington Metropolitan Area along with providing assistance and support to individuals and organizations in the United States and in Jamaica.

The concept of a Jamaican organization addressing the affairs of the Jamaican community in Washington, D.C. was influenced profoundly by the nationalistic feelings of Jamaicans during the mid-sixties: Those feelings, no doubt, emerged as a backlash of the demise of the West Indies Federation (1958-1962) in 1962.
