LOCAL LOVE | The AFRO UTAH FESTIVAL is coming!

Shoutout to the good peeps at G.K. Folks Foundation kicking off the first annual AFRO UTAH FESTIVAL – a celebration in honor of African cultures here in Utah. I love anytime we can come together as Utahn’s to celebrate our ever-growing and diverse community. It’s an all-are-welcome family-friendly affair at The Gallivan Center this Saturday August 14th from 10AM-5PM. We gotta support our own, educate each other and recognize our Afro Black Culture and it’s community members doing the work from their Cultural Scholarship Program to the amazing work they do regarding Mental Health and their programs for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).

I love this excerpt from afroutah.org..

Discover diversity by genuinely and passionately exploring Black/Afro cultures from all

around the world.

Engage in authentic cultural experiences through entertainment, food, and educational

activities.

Enlighten participants and the audience about the talents, attributes, and accomplishments of

Black/Afro-centric communities in the state of Utah and immigrant diaspora; and

Promote inclusion, and unity, while showcasing the benefits of integrating Black/Afro cultures and

Afro-centric values into our communities.

Once again love to the G.K. Folks Foundation and everyone involved in bringing us together to celebrate Afro Culture! Be sure to listen all week for free tickets, and peep all the info at afroutah.org
