The Tubman Museum in Macon, Georgia will host the 20th anniversary of one of their signature community events — Pan African Festival of Georgia, a multi-day event that explores and celebrates the impact of African and African American culture. This year’s Festival will feature live entertainment, crafts and all types of food from Caribbean to Greek to Asian to American. Activities include a pre-festival dance party featuring AJ The DJ on Thursday (April 21) evening and a Friday evening black-tie banquet honoring the Festival’s founder, Chi Ezekwueche. Saturday opens with a Marketplace on the Cherry Street Plaza featuring art, crafts, dance, vendors, food trucks, activities, performances by local talent, and evening concerts by the funk bands, Brick and Lakeside. Sunday is Praise Day on the Plaza (and Marketplace) with the soulful gospel sounds of the 150+ voice-strong Pan African Festival Mass Choir, Destined for Greatness and other musical guests, and headliner, Grammy Award-winning R&B, gospel and jazz singer-songwriter Regina Belle.
