People from all over Africa and the African diaspora participated in the Sixth Annual African Day Parade and Festival on Sept. 23, 2012 in Harlem.  From noon to 4 pm, people of African descent strolled, sang, and danced their way down Malcolm X Boulevard wearing traditional garb.  The parade was followed by a festival in Marcus Garvey Park, where everyone was treated to music from native African singers and musicians.
