Cabo Verde

The  Republic of Cabo Verde is an archipelago composed of 10 volcanic islands situated in the Atlantic Ocean some 350 miles off the coast of Senegal. The islands cover a combined area of slightly over 1,500 square miles and has a population composed mostly of mixed European and sub-Saharan African heritage (80%), black (17%) and white (3%). The population is mostly Roman Catholic. The country, which is a member of the African Union, also  has a large diaspora community that slightly outnumbers the inhabitants on the islands.The BLAC Foundation’s interest in this country is focused on its Portuguese based lingua franca known as Cabo Verdean Creole.
