Your Photos: #EverydayAfrique Rooftop Party In Brooklyn

Everyday Afrique was live in Brooklyn this Memorial Day weekend, check out how folks celebrated on social media.

DIASPORA—Brooklyn showed up and showed off this Memorial Day for OkayAfrica, Everyday People and Electrafrique's annual Everyday Afrique rooftop party.


As usual, it was a packed house as some of the city's flyest came to dance, sip on something cool and spread love the Brooklyn way. Non-stop jams were provided by DJ mOma, DJ Rich Knight, DJ UnderdogKashaka and DJ Cortega

Of course, it's not a real turn up unless there's social media proof—many of the attendees took to Instagram to document the festivities, and their posts only confirm that Everyday Afrique was the place to be last weekend.

Check out what how people celebrated with us on social media.
