ujamaa fest dayton


Greetings Family Members!

In celebration of Kwanzaa and its 7 principles; Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics,), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith), Black Empowerment Collectives, The Nation of Islam, and Black Wall Street 2.0 present the Dayton Cultural Collective! We recognize the importance of circulating dollars in our community and we intend to promote economic growth by having a vendors market in which black-owned businesses can promote their wears! We would like to provide businesses as well as community organizations an opportunity to share their contributions in a public venue so that we can all be aware of our existing products, services, and support systems.

The Dayton Cultural Collective Ujamaa Fest is organized as an event of spiritual-economic activity that will stimulate the courage and empowerment needed to establish community wealth. The vision of Kwanzaa as established by Dr. Maulana Karenga was intended for this purpose in the building of health and wealth. We understand that unless we are aware of what is available to us, we may unnecessarily miss out on opportunities to make our community stronger for ourselves and our children. The Dayton Cultural Collective is humbly extending an invite and opportunity to display your business or organization on this blessed Kwanzaa 2014.

The organizers of the Dayton Cultural Collective are only asking for a $25 donation for your vendor space and if you are willing to donate a product that will be given as prizes or gifts. With 50 planned businesses in attendance this wonderful event will take place at the Dayton Dakota Center, 33 Barnett Street, on December 27th & 28th 2014 from 12:00pm – 6:00pm.

By supporting this event with your donation and verbal promotion you are building community and recycling dollars! We thank you in advance for your support!
