What does the word Diaspora mean?
The term diaspora comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “to scatter about.” And that’s exactly what the people of a diaspora do — they scatter from their homeland to places across the globe, spreading their culture as they go.
Why we are doing this:
To bridge the gap between the different communities; all coming together in unity to learn, support business, expand our commercial customer base, experience the different aspects of the culture while celebrating and having fun
PHOENIX, ARIZONA JUNE 11, 2016 – Black Wall Street Phoenix in association with the Arizona Caribbean Cultural Association, the African Association of Arizona, and many other community partners; will celebrate its first annual Diaspora Day. This will be a historic day bringing together people of African Descent from all across Arizona. This is a chance to learn about different cultures, beliefs, customs, foods and music.
This is an awesome opportunity for you to introduce your business/organization to new communities and expand your customer base. We encourage people of all ethnic, socio-economic and religious backgrounds to participate.
