This long-running festival of African culture returns to Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park for four days of music, dance, spoken word and many other events. This year’s theme is “We Are All As One” and features performances from the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Grammy nominee Etana, Ray Chew and several other dance and drum ensembles. In addition, there will be a chess tournament, a martial arts demonstration, plenty of food from the African diaspora, a fashion show and an African marketplace, plus a play area and an arts and crafts zone for kids.
