Written by tonibjones on May 26, 2023
The city of Portsmouth kicks off the 31st annual Umoja Festival today. There are plenty of FREE activities all weekend. The Saturday talent is Boyz II Men at the Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion. (Boyz II Men is a ticketed event.)
“So what it means for this community, some 30 years ago, it was recognized by some of our leaders that we need to celebrate the heritage of African American culture and history and bring that to the forefront,” said Portsmouth Mayor Shannon Glover. “So they put their minds together and worked very diligently to put this on.”
