Diaspora Day celebrates the spreading of cultures in general, and, more specifically, the customs, beliefs, and music of African origins. Throughout a day of food sampling and games, local organizations such as Black Wall Street Phoenix, the Arizona Caribbean Cultural Association, and the African Association of Arizona will help educate and enlighten attendees as to the meaning and ramifications of diaspora. But that doesn't mean textbooks and PowerPoint lectures. Instead, there will be dancing, visual art, and even clothing vendors.
