Full Summary: Taste of Africa is a gala inundated with treasures of African cultures.

Taste of Africa is a gala inundated with treasures of African cultures. Treasures in the form of art, food, comedy, dance and a host of other entertainments are concentrated to enable our audience to interact fully with our vast multitude of African cultures. Taste of Africa this year attempts to bridge the divide that exists between Africans on the continent and Africans who have emigrated from their respective countries to continue their lives outside the continent. This year's theme, Africans Crossing the Generations, attempts to explore this generational divide and seeks to foster discussion on the cultural, social, economic, and political differences that contribute to this divide. The layout will include a dinner and art galleries in the reception area, a series of skits and dances throughout Taste of Africa in the theatre, and an African inspired fashion show to highlight the event.
