Every year this event gets bigger and better and this year’s will not disappoint!  If you have the means to do so, come through:

The fourth annual “Black President’s Day” celebration will honor the First Ladies of Afrobeat. Dedicated, loyal and innovative, these women often relegated to the sidelines, were at the center of Fela’s movement, sound and presentation. This year, we bring to light their importance with a special pre-event entitled “Aesthetics & Adornments:”
