@AfricatownSea Newspaper Launches at UMOJA Day of Unity

UMOJA Day of Unity was another Africatown event for the memory books!
 
 As the sun made a special appearance on what was forecast to be a grey and gloomy Saturday, the community came together for a gathering that continued the decade’s long summer tradition of joyous Black celebration in the Central District, featuring the annual parade, festival, community performances, children’s activities and 200 Black businesses at Jimi Hendrix Park.
 
This year’s event also brought something new to the table with the launch of Africatown’s community newspaper, @AfricatownSea.
 
The 16 page publication made its print debut, with in-depth stories examining the region’s history, community innovations, organizing successes and the people making their mark by building towards vision of a Seattle where Black people thrive now and into the future.
