Join us in Prospect Park this afternoon at 4pm for the official launch event for OKAYAFRICA, presented by Celebrate Brooklyn. It will be a celebration of all that is new, fresh, and innovative coming out of the continent and the diaspora.  Expect African influenced hip-hop, reggae, electronica, indie-rock and more.  Performers include The Roots, Talib Kweli, Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew, Blitz the Ambassador, Sahr Ngaugah (the star of FELA! on Broadway), Zakee, Dragons of Zynth and DJ sets by J. Period, Dhundee, and OP! The party will be huge, make your way over to the park right after you finish watching the WORLD CUP finals!  To be the first to find out about all our special events and contests, sign up for the OKA email list today.
