Volunteers help paint marketplace stage

A huge thank you to the volunteers who contributed to painting the stage in preparation for opening day of the One Africa! One Nation! Farmers Market!

Makel, Rebecca and Rhya, as well as One Africa! One Nation! Farmers Market project director Ticharwa and Black Power Blueprint outreach coordinator Abdullah.

Together we sanded and painted base coats on the stage. Then volunteers applied the beautiful Congo design that the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF) uses in its institutions across the country.
