At the center of the festival was Akinsanya Kambon, a former Black Panther, Vietnam Veteran, art professor, and multimedia artist. Kambon’s exhibition American Expression / African Roots, featuring his distinctive Western-Style Raku sculptures, will be on display at the museum until July 5th, 2020.
