Black August in the park will officially open this year with a parade! The route will begin at 3 pm on Durham's historic Black Wall Street (Parrish Street) and flow into Central Park. The parade will feature dancers, musicians and live music from across the diaspora representing four tribes; African-American,
Afro-Latinx, Afro-Caribbean and African.
