From the Northern treasures of Morocco, to the heart of Central African culture, and the beauty of Southern Africa, tonight we invite you to a special multi-cultural evening at the African Union Mission.

The African Union represents not only a single country, but a whole continent that represents a wilderness of savannas, deserts, cities, kingdoms, pyramids, wetlands and much much more!   It represents 55 African countries. It was established in 2007, with the mandate to consolidate constructive and productive institutional relationships between the African Union and Africans in the Diaspora, as well as with the Government of the United States of America but also to promote Africa and inform America.

The program will bring together performance, art, film, and a variety of crafts for an exhilarating celebration of culture from Africa. Tonight, journey to foreign soil to the entire continent of Africa for a very special African cultural evening and get the ultimate experience of traditional African hospitality and a peek at the country’s rich cultural heritage.
