Return to DU on Friday, February 22, for the Extravaganza itself, which takes place at Driscoll Hall, 2050 East Evans Avenue. Eat delicious national dishes, shop for fair-trade crafts in the African Market, watch performances by master drummers and dancers from five nations such as Adjei Abankwah and Mohammed Alidu, as well as Ashanti dancers from Ghana and experience the vibrant fashions of the continent. This event is also free and runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Both venues are close to visitor parking areas on either side of Evans at Race Street.
The African Community Center is a non-profit, non-partisan, refugee resettlement agency whose task is to aid refugees in the process of building new lives in Denver. This year, the program turbocharged its after-school options to include soccer and Cleo Parker Robinson Dance programs.
