HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

It is with sadness and heartache that I announce my stepping down as Afrifest Foundation's Executive Director at year's end. As I move forward to explore new opportunities and a new home, I look back with fond memories and pride at the incredible journey and labor of love Afrifest has been for me personally. It was never easy starting something new and getting a lot of diverse and culturally unique folks to work together to see themselves in a new light and not by their country of origin or ethnic heritage, but it was worth every drop of sweat and tear shed in the pursuit of that dream.
 
To my long-time collaborator, Professor Joseph Mbele, who refused to allow me to quit when the going was really tough and encouraged me every step of the way, I say THANK YOU. To Wycliff Chakua, Afrifest Foundation's Treasurer and long-time supporter, I say THANK YOU. To our past and present board members, supporters, sponsors, vendors, artists, etc... I say THANK YOU for your support and trust over the years.

Change is ever constant and it should never be feared, but looked upon as a chance for opportunity and renewal. I leave the festival and Foundation's future in the hands of the community and the board of directors to renew, direct, and plot a new course and continue the dream that was started in 2007.
 
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous and enlightening future going forward!
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Nathan S. White
