      On Saturday 08/21/2010 at 3:00 p.m. the Entire Alghanee Family Invites You to Join in the celebration in honor of Empress Njeri Alghanee at the African World Festival in Detroits' Hart Plaza.
      This year the festival celebrates Our Newest Shero Njeri Alghanee for her lifelong unselfish work as a freedom fighter and reparationist. Please come and be a part of the sharing of Love and Joy for Sister Njeri in her hometown of Detroit. The Official Mama Njeri Memorial Tee Shirt and Obituary will be available at the celebration. Be Sure to Get the Limited Edition before they're gone.

      This is a taste of the Omowale Drummers and Dancers 



      This wonderful dance and drum troop exists because of one of our local Detroit Heroes - Baba Sundiata Kieta who passed away three years ago. He was one of the most well known Djembe players from the area. He traveled globally and trained drummers and dancers in traditional Yoruba Drumming and Dance for over 30 years. We will never forget you Baba for you are the door..
      BadGalsRadio will be there covering the entire fete live with the family.
      We'll be looking forward to seeing you at Hart Plaza on Detroit's beautiful waterfront on Saturday from 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. come and shake hands and meet the family and take photos with Ras Mausi and his family. They would love to see you and hear your stories of how Empress Njeri Impacted Your Life.
      OOOOhhhh and did we forget to mention, there's a huge festival going on the whole weekend - "The Charles H. Wright African World Festival" - Be There or Miss the Biggest Family Event in Detroits' Summertime Schedule.
