Attendees will sample dishes from Zambia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Senegal. They will be captivated through the oral traditions of storytelling that mentally knits the common thread of experience of people from African lands. Those who choose to participate are encouraged to relax and allow their bodies to get lost in the rhythms of cultural dance presentations with the traditional sounds of the African villages. Cultural and African attire is welcomed.

While everyone is in the spirit of #WakandaForever, now is a good time to have real conversations and ask sincere questions and learn about Africa.  Hosting the event is Kojo Donquah-Duah of Ghana. Returning from 2016 to perform African Dance is Lady Grace Inyangetor. The 2018 Residing Chief is Chief Albert Adom Owusu. Other guests include 2017 Chief Tonna Celestine Okei of Nigeria and Shea Ra’Mond Harley, and James Shadd.
