DESCRIPTION: Haraambee Ujima Black Arts Festival,”Breathing Life Into the Community” features a parade (Friday), vendors, children’s station, food, entertainment, art gallery and more.
The festival provides an opportunity for the community to celebrate the culture that has existed over 50 years in the Homewood Community. Breathing Life Back Into the Community maintains the legacy that has been set in place.
The festival addresses history of America’s Black Diaspora by exploring the well-being with art as an economic generator. Harambee uses the Cultural Framework modeled after Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Black Wall Street.
We petition America: to join us, to build a trade wall to separate the Black Diaspora from income oppression by starting a trade right on the streets of Homewood, PA
