Second-year chemistry student Sara Martinez and first-year English major Tatiana Rodriguez browse through handmade African jewellery at AfroFest, Tuesday in the CAW Student Centre. Artist Juli Amoah, a native of Ghana, said she loves to "share our vibrant culture."
The festival, a celebration of the African diaspora, continues through the week. Today's events include the display of the International African Inventors Museum, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Mosaic Marketplace, featuring vendors exhibiting African-inspired art, music and goods, from noon to 6 p.m.
Third-year international relations and development student Brandon Sims views exhibits of the International African Inventors Museum. He has a keen appreciation of history, he says—his family has been in Windsor since the mid-1800s, when his great-great-grandfather escaped slavery in the southern United States.
