      INGA Association will celebrate the

      46th Anniversary of the D. R. of Congo

      Independence. The historical event

      dated of June 30, 1960.

      On this date, Belgium-Congo recovered

      its sovereignty and its people became its

      own master again. Since then, Congo

      has been confronted with so many

      tragedies that have compromised its

      development until today

      First presidential and legislative

      elections are expected this coming July

      2006 with the hope to bring a new level

      of consciousness and a new period of

      peace, tranquility and progress needed.

      On July 8, 2006, our community will

      remember the Independence Day as an

      opportunity to celebrate our rich

      Congolese culture and traditions as well

      as a time to reflect on the history of our

      countries. Our Community Association

      has members from both Congo (Dem.

      Rep. of Congo & Republic of Congo).

      The two Congo have different colonial

      history (D. R. Congo was a Belgium

      colony and the other one a French

      colony). But both share some similar

      culture of music and dance. This special

      annual event aims to educate and raise

      the awareness of Congolese cultural in

      Northern California where members

      from both countries are engaged to

      promote their community through

      INGA Association. This year, the theme

      for the annual cultural extravaganza is:
