On Saturday, April 21st the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF) hosted their 7th annual Uhuru Health Festival & Flea Market! The theme this year was Family • Fitness • Freedom: Putting the Power of African Health in African Hands!
The free all-day program in West Philly’s beautiful Clark Park at 43rd and Chester Ave. featured live music in the park, fitness workshops including African Kemet Yoga, Zumba and Soul Line Dance, free health screenings, giveaways, 100+ vendors and the Children’s Circle.
Special guest Black Power 96.3 FM station manager Diakiesse Lungisani led his African dance exercise program Gettin’ Bodied, contributing to the fight against diabetes, heart disease and obesity, which disproportionately kill our people!
