Learning in Community: St. Paul’s Little Africa

Thursday, July 14 | 11:00 am2:00 pm


Minnesota is home to over 150,000 Africans, including the largest Somali population outside of Africa. Yet, many people are not aware of the rich cultural traditions and assets African immigrants and refugees bring to the vibrancy of our state. Build your cultural understanding and awareness of Minnesota’s African cultures as you immerse yourself within St. Paul’s Little Africa cultural corridor. This interactive, in-person experience will include an Ethiopian coffee ceremony at Sabrina’s Cafe & Deli, a tour of several African-owned businesses, lunch at the Eritrean-owned Snelling Cafe, and a special presentation of speakers and artists.

This event is a collaboration with African Economic Development Solutions.

Space is limited to 40 participants.

K-12 educators will receive 3 clock hours.
