Come join the world's longest celebration of Hip Hop Culture. The 11th Annual Universal Hip-Hop Parade steps off in the Bed-Stuy neighbourhood of Brooklyn on Saturday August 14th at 3:00 PM from Herbert von King Park near the Lafayette and Tompkins Ave entrance. The parade proceeds down Marcus Garvey Boulevard thru the commercial heart of Bed-Stuy to Fulton Street where it takes a right turn at the intersection of Nostrand Ave and Fulton Street before ending at Franklin Avenue.
At the endpoint participants are urged to network and to patronize our local community businesses especially the wide range of our fine local restaurants.
The parade, an annual non-profit educational and cultural event is always held on the Saturday before the anniversary of Marcus Garvey's August 17th birthday. Marcus Garvey used culture as a tool to empower people and encouraged the growth of Black institutions.
So come to the historic Black neighborhood of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn on Saturday, August 14th 2010 and celebrate this legendary freedom fighter's birthday by participating in and watching the 11th Annual Universal Hip-Hop Parade.
Your presence and participation is what makes the celebration fun, exciting and successful!
