SAN DIEGO: San Diego Repertory Theatre, in partnership with their African American Advisory Council and San Diego Urban Warriors Inc., has announced the schedule for this year’s Kuumba Fest. Curated by festival artistic director Dajahn Blevins, the festival will take place fully online February 26-28.
“This year’s celebration of engineers for change is steeped in the annual opportunity for San Diego to embrace and experience African American culture through Black traditions, voices, art, and expression,” Blevins said in a statement. “We are honoring the journey and connecting to the future creatively, together.”
The festival will open with the annual Night of Positive Images, honoring and celebrating Black ancestry and community. The festival will continue through the weekend with play readings, dance performances, and panel discussions, and will conclude with Sunday’s Day of Spiritual Celebration. The full schedule is available on on the website.
Founded in 1993, Kuumba Fest is San Diego’s longest running celebration of African American culture, expression, and heritage, bringing together community leaders, local performers, and celebrities.
