In honor of Black History Month, the Afro-Black American Club of Central Union High School will host the 11th annual Kutembelea on Saturday in El Centro's Bucklin Park.
Kutembelea, meaning "to visit," will feature a wide variety of cultural entertainment from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
From break dancing, folklorico and karate demonstrations to the smooth sounds of Valley Jazz and church choirs, the family-friendly event will have something for everyone.
In his effort to bring a visual celebration of black history to the Imperial Valley, Donald Walker, a teacher at Central, started Kutembelea in 1990.
According to an event handout, Kutembelea has several purposes not exclusive to Black History Month. Family, friends and the meeting of new acquaintances is one such priority.
