To promote, enhance and encourage African Unity amongst Africans in the Diaspora and Africa. This unique festival is to celebrate Africa and the experiences of its people using the vehicle of African arts, culture, music and dance. To reaffirm the common heritage of people of African descent around the world, to define Africa’s contribution to world civilization.

Festival Mission:

The Africans in America Festival commemorates the forced enslavement and transportation of millions of Africans to the Americas and the Caribbean Islands. Thus, the festival supports African descendants in the Diaspora who are seeking to embark on a spiritual quest for further enlightenment, discovery, development and fulfillment whilst confronting a troubling past and coming to terms with their true self.
