The KSAC held fifth annual African Liberation Day celebration at St William Grant Park in downtown Kingston, as part of a continued partnership with our African partners.
African Liberation Day is a very important day on the KSAC’s calendar, as it serves as a reminder of our rich history and the merging of the two cultures of Jamaica and Africa.
It is for this reason, we place such great emphasis on this event. This celebration is an important acknowledgement of the cultural influence of Africentrism on our identity as a people
