HONORING OUR ANCESTORS :: An Free Outdoor Celebration

presented by WEPA NYC

Saturday, May 31, 2014 (1 - 8pm)

A free outdoor celebration dedicated to our roots, ourselves and our interconnection.
Nowadays, it’s easy to lose touch with our human connection.  We are descendants of people who made sacrifices so that we could live a better life. Let’s keep their memory alive and share our heritage, especially with the children.
At the end, we are all ONE.
