Saturdays: Our Afrifemme Heritage on Saturday, March 12th from 1:00 to 5:00pm at The Shabazz Center. This event will honor the contributions of women, past and present, to the culture and traditions of the African Diaspora.

Children of all ages can take part in art therapy reflecting upon the women in their lives. They will engage in physical movement through the exploration of dance traditions created by our femme forebearers, and dive into ancestral practices of African garment design that embody women’s stories.
