Upon both of us meeting @ Willie Birch’s gardens in the 7th ward community shortly after discussing a few things we realized that a tribute dinner to mother Africa is a journey we will take together. This is our first of many things to come. African history is a massive and intricate subject, world-shaking events have shaped the continent’s history, from the early men and women who left their footsteps in volcanic ash to the liberation of Nelson Mandela, and lot of wars, conquests, civilizations and revolutions in between. You’ve probably heard the claim that Africa is ‘the birthplace of humanity’. It`s the land of our ancestors,
“Africa is the oldest and most enduring landmass in the world. When you stand on African soil, 97% of what’s under your feet has been in place for more than 300 million years. During that time, Africa has seen pretty much everything – from proto-bacteria to dinosaurs and finally, around five to 10 million years ago, a special kind of ape called Australopithecines, that branched off (or rather let go of the branch), and walked on two legs down a separate evolutionary track.” _Tony and Maureen Wheeler
This tribute dinner will be giving back to mother Africa by bringing awareness of how deep the cuisines, cultures, and arts are connecting us people.
Come join us and enjoy a new experience!
