Our AfriFemme Traditions – A Free NYC Women’s History Month Family Event In East Harlem

Join the celebration for all NYC families with children of all ages taking place on March 12th, 2022, entitled Sou Sou! Saturdays: Our AfriFemme Traditions.

The event, is organized by the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, at The Shabazz Center from 1 – 5 p.m.

During the event they will provide families with an opportunity to honor the contributions of women, past and present, to the culture and traditions of the African Diaspora.

As we collectively commemorate Women’s History Month throughout March, CCCADI and The Shabazz Center seek to gather with the community in honoring African Diasporic matriarchs, healers, tradition holders, and storytellers who ensure future generations know their ancestors, leaders, and heritage.
