A beloved cultural festival in downtown Memphis is wrapping up after four days of celebration and education.
The 36th annual Africa in April Cultural Awareness Festival at Robert Church Park was a salute to the Republic of Rwanda. Vendors, many of them from Africa, were in Memphis selling their authentic goods.
“It’s a platform where you get authentic African products. Most of these products are from Africa,” said Mutarr Jallow, a vendor at the festival.
