ABOUT US

Each year, Evrything Africa aims to bring together the U.S.-based pan-African community in the DMV for an entire weekend of cultural exchange.

The purpose of our conference is to find ways to invest back into our native communities and share our varied cultures in ways that will change people's perceptions of Africa and how they respond to it.

 

Our 3-day event will be held in Washington D.C., home to one of the most diverse African communities in the U.S.
