Africa Day Festival Headlined by Questlove, The Roots, and Naomi Campbell on Memorial Day

Just because we are in the house doesn’t mean that we can’t experience good music, practice our culture, and create lasting memories. Most of our favorite events are being moved to the online world where we can still enjoy from the safety of our homes. Since we cannot travel, Questlove and The Roots brought us their Africa Day Festival on all digital platforms just in time for Memorial Day.

The Africa Day Festival was a 24-hour virtual event that began on Sunday, May 24. Fans were serenaded with live Dj performances and artists from all over the world.

The event started with a short introduction from Naomi Campbell at 11:50 pm EDT on Sunday, May 24. She spoke to her audience and said, ““I miss the continent. I miss Senegal, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya. They’re all so different but the one common thread is that I feel grounded and I feel peaceful when I’m in Africa.”

According to ESSENCE, #The RootsAfricaDay programming created “The Bridge: A discussion in the Diaspora,” a conversation co-hosted by Black Thought and Tina Farris. Farris, who is the cofounder of the content series The Bridge, made their discussion inclusive with guest speakers. The speakers included Nasty C (South African), Tobe Ngiwe (Nigerian-American), Mereba (Ethiopian-American) and Bobi Wine (Ugandan). (read more here)

This journey in Xyion, to me, is the centerpiece of all to come and what shall remain. Xyion, the the term, “Shari’ah”, must be imagined as a geometric diagram, which will clarify interpretation more fully. Shari’ah consist of the circumference of the circle, which obviously the circumference is that which defines it; there is no circle without a circumference. Once the circumference is dissolved, the circle itself ceases to exists. Thus, for every circle a certain primacy is given to its circumference. Likewise every circle has a center and the center of the circle of Shari’ah is the Haqiqah. It is from which is limited and defined by the circumference that is the Shari’ah. Xyion (for me) equals Shari’ah and this balance is the journey.
