DESCRIPTION

Since its inception on March 6, 1966 as the Crispus Attucks Day Parade, The African American Heritage Day Parade has galvanized thousands of participants, marchers, students and spectators to line Broad Street, Newark, New Jersey to celebrate and to make certain that the glorious heritage and contributions of Africans and African American people are not forgotten.

The African American Heritage Parade Organization  (AAHPO) is a non-profit event with the sole purpose to honor, celebrate, teach and showcase our heritage, culture, talent, children, leaders and to honor freedom.  The parade is a family oriented event in which our state-wide community gathers together for a safe, nurturing and exciting event.
