Since 1994, the AfroSolo Arts Festival has provided a forum for Black people to give an authentic voice to the Black experience. The mission of AfroSolo is to nurture, promote, and present Black art and culture through solo performances and the visual and literary arts. Their aim is to bring people of all ethnicities together to explore and share the bonds that unite everyone.
