Nobidade TV

Nobidade TV is a CapeVerdean program started in Rhode Island (USA) during the year of 1988. This was the first program of its kind to be broadcasted completely in CapeVerdean Creole. Nobidade TV has many purposes: Its original idea was to educate the public of the CapeVerdean People and their culture. Its emphasis has been to promote CapeVerdean language and culture from artistic expression through music, art, poetry, and other historical perspective.

Nobidade TV has brought public attention to "cultural pluralism" CapeVerdean Americans have began organizing greater public awareness of their distinct identity within local communities in Rhode Island and in parts of Massachusetts. This program has been the catalyst for social promotion of CapeVerdean artists from around the world and continues to work for humanity and the upliftment of Africa.
