One Africa! One Nation! Cultural Festival in Huntsville, Alabama

HUNTSVILLE, AL–On October 3, 2015, one of the Uhuru Movement’s non-profit organizations, The All African People Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP), is having its 1st One African One Nation (OAON) Cultural Festival fundraiser in conjunction with the City of Huntsville Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA).
The fundraiser will be held in Huntsville, AL., at the Big Spring Park from 10am to 5pm.
The OAON Cultural Festival Committee travelled from Huntsville, Alabama to Philadelphia, PA. on August 23rd 2015 for the Uhuru Marketplace in Clark Park to receive on-the-job training on how to properly coordinate and carry out a successful marketplace.
The Huntsville OAON Committee began to organize over a year ago, receiving leadership from Deputy Chair of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) and Office of Economic Development, Ona Zene Yeshitela, and coordinator of the Philly Uhuru Flea Market, Tiffany Murphy.
The Uhuru Marketplace has been a tool of the Movement for over 20 years in various areas to generate resources and serve as a business incubator for local African businesses wherever it is manifested.
The OAON Committee gained tangible experience at the Uhuru Marketplace by doing practical work during the event.
The trip proved to be a great success and was indeed beneficial and productive.
They witnessed firsthand how one of the largest flea markets in Philadelphia is operated from set up to break down. It was quite the endeavor!

The training also gave the committee the tools and motivation needed for the final push before their Cultural Festival on October 3rd in Huntsville, Alabama.
