HarlemAmerica Virtual Event – African American Day Parade Sept. 19 at 12 PM

by admin

The AADP focuses on five basic components that help to strengthen the community: Business, Education, Health, Politics/Government & Arts/Culture. Each year we choose one of these sectors as our theme and we invite those that have contributed to that field to act as our Grand Marshals, Marshals, and Honorary Guests. This year the AADP theme is “Education is the Foundation” and we will honor individuals that have contributed to the African American community in the field of Education. We are pleased to highlight those who have shown positively contributed to the success and dignity of the community and this country.

Not good people are on 125 street looking for parade. Should be something for the people who have no internet. No one wants to see old parade March.

It was mentioned that the parade would be virtual this year on WBLS. You’re so right about having other outlets so people could view. Last year they had a small crowd at the Schomburg, but probably by special invitation only.
