Kusherehekea! That means “celebrate” in the Swahili language, and that’s want we plan to do — celebrate African American history.
From the language, food, and literature; to the music, art, and dance, African American cultural expression is a unique centuries-old blend of African and American traditions. The annual Taste of Soul Sunday (TOSS) celebrates this tradition, and it’s one of our most popular events. We’re offering workshops, food, and entertainment. Here’s a little taste of TOSS:
- Award-winning journalist, and TV personality Rochelle Riley will talk about the art of celebrating “differences without segregating ourselves.”
- Our very own Karisa Wilson, indie folk musician extraordinaire, will soothe us with music from her award-winning album Little Girl.
- And what would an African American cultural celebration be without some good down-home gospel. This year we’re featuring two local gospel groups: V.I.P. and the Imani Singers. I can already feel the spirit!
Please join us on February 16, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the ninth annual TOSS.
