Live dance, tables full of art, jewelry and other handmade items lined the streets of Homewood this weekend for the 50th anniversary Harambee Black Arts Festival. The free event kicked off Friday with the annual Soul Stepping Parade and closes tonight at 8 p.m on Kelly Street.
Homewood resident NeeNettia Edmonds described the event as fantastic.
“I came down here after all the violence and everything that’s going on in the Homewood area, I decided to step out and try to join the peaceful activity.”
