The Africa Expo
Saying Black Lives Matter and putting a sign in your yard is great but how about distributing your dollars in the Black community? The Africa Expo showcases Black Entrepreneurs and their talents and invites the community to support them. Come to do early holiday shopping with unique handmade products from clothing to art and enjoy delicious food and drinks too. Stay for performances from across the African diaspora which includes music, poetry, an African puppet show for kids, a caricature artists, face painter, 360 video experience, a panel discussion on authentic connections to Africa, and an African ceremony honoring 2 activists in our community.It will be a community block party and all who believe Black Lives Matter are welcome.
