New Places, New Faces! The We Are Africa Road Tour is Back!
Last year we traveled from New Orleans to New England. This summer we’re going from Chi-Town to Motown, stopping in Atlanta and concluding the tour with a return to D.C., exploring new routes to celebrate our African roots.
We’ve added new members to the Road Crew! Gina Paige, Ralston Smith, and Victoria Massie will be traveling the country again—iPad ready. But we’re also excited to welcome Christine Gwin, a senior psychology major at Howard University.
But the Road Crew isn’t the only group reuniting. This year, each event will also feature African Diaspora Family Reunions! Come meet others who share your ancestry! Check out the schedules below for the date and time of your reunion!
