The AACA was founded in May of 1983 by several concerned African American community members in Nashville who wanted to promote the positive aspects of African culture. The primary concern of the African American Cultural Alliance is to enhance the awareness of the cultural and historical background of people of African descent, while providing various outlets in which we ourselves can take part in demonstrating our culture to others.
The African Cultural Alliance embraces the definition of culture as all material and immaterial things that a people manifests in order to survive, adapt, control and flourish in their environment.
Some of our programming includes:
The African Street Festival
(held annually at Hadley Park and Recreation Center)
MLK Day March
Annual Tribute to Civil War U.S. Colored Troops
Nashville African American History Tours
Cultural and Environmental Consulting
Participation in the Mayor’s First Day of School Event
Marcus Garvey Library Expansion Project
(in Jamaica, West Indies)
