African Drum March: In Memory of African Immigrants Killed by Police
UPDATE: We are still building capacity for this event to ensure its success and so that it will be done right. This will be rescheduled to the end of next year of 2017 to allow for further planning and with the goal of starting KWANZAA on the correct date of December 26, outreach to all Africans of the Diaspora, IMMIGRATION CLINIC for Africans of the Diaspora, and a BAZAAR for Africans of the Diaspora to showcase their businesses. We direct people to Elizabeth Kahura’s “Kwanzaa Celebration” on December 30, 2016 at the Carver Museum and Theatre for the time being.
