2nd Annual African Awards USA
Humanitarians, educators, fashion designers, actors, medical professionals, and diplomats—all get their moment in the spotlight at the 2nd Annual African Awards. The ceremony honors the Africans and African-Americans living in Atlanta who have made positive, selfless contributions to improve the local community and the African continent. Such people include defensive-end Osi Umenviora, who will be receiving the Sport Personality of the Year award, and Estella Ogbonna, who is nominated for Fashion Designer of the Year. Between the awards, audiences will witness a live performance and special guest appearances, creating a festive air that carries over into the live entertainment. There, while enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, revelers can rub elbows with winners or rub winners' awards in hopes of making a genie appear.
Behind the ceremony is Hope of Africa, Inc. This non-profit works to improve the local community through education and empowerment, positively presenting Africa through art, music, and other culture. Yet the organization also keeps an eye on the people in Africa itself, sending resources such as medical and school supplies to the orphans and underprivileged there.
