Ujamaafest is back for it 7th year of cooperative economics in metro Atlanta. This year to be held at the Atlanta City Hall Atrium on 12/23/2017. The name says it all. “Ujamaa”fest is a cultural celebration and is based on one of the principles of Kwanzaa.
Ujamaa – Cooperative Economics – To build our own businesses and control the economics of our own communities.
The theme is “Black Money Matters”. Understanding that the Black dollar has power needs to be reiterated on a annual basis and expo’s like this are important for fostering that idea. A recent Nielsen report shows statistics that prove that Black women are driving Black buying power to trillions. This festival implements that message further by bringing together artists, vendors, speakers for a day of learning and community fellowship!
