The Taste of the Diaspora festival on October 15th in Titusville features African dance and drum classes.

The event pays tribute to historian Dr. Runoko Rashidi. His legacy includes a life’s work in tracking Africa’s presence and achievements around the world.

Rashidi, who passed away in 2021, was one of the world’s leading scholars of the presence of Africans in ancient societies. He traveled the world, occasionally attending study sessions, visiting museums and world heritage sites, and speaking about his research.
