African American Heritage Festival

June 16-18

Erykah Badu

Posted 6/14/2006

Once again Camden Yards is transformed into a three-day celebration of traditional African culture, the legacy of African-Americans, and a whole explosion of entertainment, including the sultry Erykah Badu, a hip-hop all-stars lineup led by Doug E. Fresh, and the always soulful Ms. Chaka Khan. Or you could skip the three stages and spend days taking in the vendors selling African wares, jewelry, T-shirts—you name it. Or gorge yourself on the food, both traditionally African and traditionally Baltimorean. Plus all are welcome and encouraged to come down and show their support, waste money on novelties, and have a good time. Oh, and it’s free, so your excuse for missing it is what, exactly? (Jess Harvell)
