Malcolm X Birthday Celebration 2009

African Renaissance Celebration

The African Culture Connection & the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation celebrate Malcolm X and his message of unity by bringing Africa to America with financial support from the **Nebraska Arts Council.

On Tuesday, June 30th (New Date!) at the Adams Park Community Center.  We will be receiving all visitors with the sounds of the Djembe Drums and the beautiful colors of African Dance.

We will host an African themed culture and arts celebration; a small recreated village where the sights, sounds, tastes, and beauty of ancient African kingdoms such as Ghana, Mali, and Songhai come alive.  We will have craft vendors, African games, drumming, dance, story telling, African attire and a flag display from African countries.

Omaha’s African Cultural Connection (ACC) is an organization of professional artists using traditional African dance, music and story to encourage students to learn more about the positive contributions African cultures have made to society.   They will be joining us in our celebration.
