About The First Afro-Latino Festival of New York…
The First Afro-Latino Festival of New York, in conjunction with the Brooklyn Arts and Culture Fest, will be held on June 29, 2013 in Parkside Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Our goal is to create a platform that showcases our diversity and commonality within our African Diaspora groups through culture, art and history. In addition, have constructive dialogue on contemporary issues affecting our local communities and those abroad. We as Latinos of African descent should be proud of our rich heritage. We want our young people to reinforce respect, appreciation, recognition and acknowledgement of our ancestors. The First Afro-Latino Festival of New York has a principal mission to strengthen and unite us as a people of African descent from Latin America and now living in the melting pot of New York City.
