AFRAM 2018 Festival Recap



Last weekend marked the 42nd annual AFRAM Festival. The AFRAM Festival celebrates African American life, music and culture. The festival kicked off on Saturday at 12 P.M. at Baltimore City's Druid Hill Park and concluded Sunday at 6 P.M.


London R&B singer Ella Mai headlined this year's AFRAM festival. Atlanta singer Jacquees, former Bad Boy singer Carl Thomas, "The Voice" contestant Davon Fleming, and gospel singer Vashawn Mitchell graced the stage as well.


Baltimore's own Dru Hill had a homecoming performance. Their name coined from Druid Hill Park.





Besides musical entertainment, vendors and local artists varied within the park. While the crowd enjoyed the music and arts, Baltimore made sure to include helpful resources like financial literacy, employment, job training health, and more.


Delaware resident, Grace Jones had this to say on the festival,


"I look forward to this event every year. I'm glad it got extended back to two days. I have a friend in town I stay with and come to embrace our culture. This love is needed in the community."


The age of the crowd ranged from young to old, families to couples, and even a few people enjoying it alone.


15-year-old Tisha Harris had this to say about Ella Mai's performance,


"She is an amazing artist. I love her music. It's one thing to hear her in the car, but to see her live was so awesome. "Boo'd Up" is my favorite song right now and she performed it twice! The city will remember this love."
