TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Hoping to inspire unity in the community, FAMU held its second annual Harambee Festival on Saturday.
Featuring vendors across the region, live performances, jewelry, and international food, the festival gives folks a chance to experience cultures outside of their own.
"We’re here to honor our ancestors, and its black history month and we're here to honor all the great legacy that has come before us," said Charlene Balewa of FAMU Communications.
"We’re America, we're open to a whole different melting pot of different environments and cultures so we should do things like this to cultivate unity and things of that matter in our communities," said FAMU student and performer, Sharard Saddlers.
The festival also included a performance from FAMU alumni and Grammy award winner, Kendra Foster.
