DanceAfrica Bazaar 2021

The DanceAfrica Bazaar goes digital, spotlighting independent Black-owned businesses in a vibrant online marketplace! Many of these vendors have been an integral part of DanceAfrica through the years, contributing to the vital presence of African, Caribbean, and African-American culture in Brooklyn. All proceeds go directly to the businesses—providing critical support to independent artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs whose work celebrates the rich cultural heritage of Africa and its diaspora.
