On June 30, 2018, ABCL is hosting an African Diaspora Cultural Festival in June in honor of Immigrant Heritage Month. Haiti has been chosen as the country for the inaugural event at the Church of Our Redeemer in Lexington. There will be samples of Haitian cuisine, natural and historical art, Haitians living in the community and the Commonwealth, arts and crafts exploration for children, and more!
Join us in the Great Room (basement)! Plenty of parking in the rear of the church.
