INDIGO SUN~ African Unity Party Cruise. Sunday, August 19th in New York City . Www.consciousnyc.com
Come Celebrate! the launching of "Indigo Sun" the African Unity boat-ride. A little stronger and more global minded than our previous prequel production "The Blackstarliner Boatride" in Honor of Marcus Garvey.
Taking place in the harbors of New York, we cruise Sunday, August 19th at 8pm on the Harbor Lights mega yacht. The Harbors Lights has the capacity of 400 people between 2 floors and open sundeck.
To start the evening we celebrate the gathering with complimentary food to lift the spirit. All food will be made available from local chefs, restaurants and caterers from the African Diaspora promoting their menus.
As the night ensues, DJ's fill the air with sounds from musical journeys influenced by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley and Fela. Also included a live performance upcoming artists reflecting the hearts and minds of our ancestors. Venturing up to the sundeck, expecting drums and African dancing plays against a New York sunset.
In honor of Marcus Garvey's quest for business development. This is a continued venture to encourage self-reliance and building a community without competition. The market place is setup for limited number of speciality vendors and entrepreneurs for all to engage. For some this will be there first direct interaction with a growing community and for repeat community vendors there brand will be introduced to a new audience.
Indigo Sun hopes to gain further support for African entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship. Here is a chance for all to stand together and connect with each other for various reasons but one aim of a "Renewed Global African Movement" a vast platform full of creativity, talent and uplifting power.
