DESCRIPTION: Harambee Ujima Black Arts and Culture Festival “Breathing Life into the Community” features various vendors, parade and other activities.
This is an Out of the Box Economic Justice Project. The Harambee Ujima Black Art and Culture Association serves as an opportunity for America to reverse the story of segregation and offer a remedy to dis-advanced people. The goal to stop minority cultures from being deleted from existence by standing against Outrageous-Fortunes, Power and Racism’s profit sanctions and to repair damages to Diversity in trade. We address the history of America’s Black Diaspora by exploring Well-Being with art as an economic generator. Harambee uses the Cultural Framework modeled after Tulsa, Oklahoma’s “Black Wall Street”.
We petition America: join us, to build a trade wall to help separate the Black Diaspora from income oppression by starting a trade right on the streets of
Homewood PA. We search for answers to support America’s social contracts role to breathe life into underserved and disenfranchised communities.
