2016-2017 marks 39 years for the Annual African American Heritage Festival! This coming festival will center around the word "Madhumuni," which is the Swahili word for Purpose! The theme, Finding power in our purpose, will be incorporated throughout the week of the festival! We invite all of The Ohio State University and community members to join us for our annual celebration. Please continue to look back at our schedule page for future updates to events as near the event.
