"AFRIFEST™ is about showing that one standard doesn't apply. All the different countries, different languages, different geographies, and cultures still can't hide the fact that we all are African in some way. It's a place of contrasts, from vast riches to dirt poverty, from lush forests to dry deserts, from pollution to pristine beaches. Afrifest is meant to show us how unique and similar all AFRICANS are; whether they are from America, Europe, South America, or the Caribbean.”
-Nathan White (Afrifest Founder and Producer, 2007)
