Celebrating Africa and Black History
Trace the history of mankind back to the motherland where it all began, beautiful Africa. From diverse wildlife to indigenous civilizations, cultural representatives from Walt Disney World’s International Programs will show you how Africa’s long history helped shape its art and culture. Representatives from various African countries will present a wide variety of artwork, linguistic information, handmade items, traditions, fashion and more.
