Africatown Winter Arts & Soul Festival Nov 25-28


Last week, Missouri students and football team showed the power of unity and strategic economic action. A month ago millions responded to the call of #JusticeOrElse in Washington DC and communities across the country are getting ready for the second year of Black Friday Boycotts to make the statement that #BlackLivesMatter.

1The Black Friday Concert feat. Owour Arunga will focus on our continued struggle for social and economic empowerment in the Black community as a highlight the first Annual Africatown Winter Arts & Soul Fest. In partnership with Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, Arunga Music, Taste of Caribbean/Red Lounge, and Lake Chad Cafe the four days of festivities will highlight the neighborhood’s unique African American heritage and African diaspora flavors while promoting community businesses throughout the holiday season kicking off with Shop Small and Small Business Saturday.
