First Annual African Diaspora Festival

Image31 July to 2 August 2009
Newark Military Park, Broad Street and Park Place, Newark, NJ

The purpose of the Festival is to facilitate the promotion of the African Civilization by reinforcing unity and cultural integration. This event will help affirm and define the legacy of the African Diaspora; aimed at encouraging self-reliance and increase the quality of relationships and dialogue between the Communities. We will have the participation of people of African descent from Africa, the Americas, and the Caribbean Islands and beyond.  We hope to bring together people of Africa descent and members from other communities to celebrate our shared ancestry, history, and spiritual heritage. The goal is to create a channel of understanding of the African Tradition and Civilization in order to cultivate a strong global brotherhood and sisterhood within our Communities.

Partner Organizations / Agencies (Co-sponsors) include Africa -Newark International INC., The Africana Institute at Essex County College, African Youth Association, The African and American Alliance (AAA), and the Humanity For Africa Foundation (HFAF).

Sponsors and vendors are still needed.  Interested parties should contact 617-953-1730 or 908-468-9147.
