African American Day Parade

Harlem: The 49th annual African-American Parade marched through the mecca of Black U.S.A. on Sunday hundreds of participants followed a mile-long route through a key stretch of the historic community of Harlem. Parade dignitaries included former New York City Mayor David N. Dinkins, the Big Apple’s first Black mayor, and retired Congressman Charles Rangle both longtime Harlem residents.

While the parade took place in Manhattan, marchers from across the city came to Harlem to ring in the yearly occasion that celebrates one of the oldest Black communities in the country.

This year’s parade theme was “Culture is Key” and, according to the official website, honored “individuals and organizations that have made key contributions to furthering the dignity, determination and excellence of African American Community & Culture, in the fields of dance, theater, music, movies & Film, television, broadcasting, literature, fashion, technology, sports and more.”
