The Bridges 2 Africa Foundation is a Nashville based 501(C)3 organization founded in 2009. For years, Bridges 2 Africa has been passionately creating opportunities to help people discover, connect, explore and celebrate Africa. Activities for the African Fun & Heritage celebrations are centered around bringing the African community in Tennessee together to celebrate our rich heritage with the wider community. The African Fun & Heritage day provides an incredible opportunity for us to unite as a community, keep our kids born in the Diaspora interested in Mother Africa, our culture, heritage and provide an opportunity to network.
