The festival will feature artists, intellectuals and influential individuals from around the world for an international celebration of global blackness.

In the spirit of Kwame Nkrumah’s seminal independence speech, the Black Star Line Festival is intended to be a beacon for the total liberation of all African peoples, from the continent, to the Americas, to the islands, back to Europe and beyond.
