Description

This art exhibition will feature 30 images spanning the 30 years of the African Festival of the Arts captured by the Chicago Alliance of African American Photographers (CAAAP). There will also be a video presentation showcasing some 500 additional images from the event done by the CAAAP. The exhibit includes images of community residents, professionals, spiritualists, vendors, sponsors, students, political leaders, educators, performers, scientists… telling their own story of the relevance of AFA through the lenses of their actions caught on camera. In unison, they all propagate the advancement of the vibrant art, and textured and layered cultural history of Black people of African descent from around the world.
