There will also be numerous workshops focusing on the theme of Financial Freedom. According to organizer Tamiko Garrison, financial gurus such as credit coaches, investment consultants, bankers, financial planners and tax attorneys will be on hand to discuss credit repair, investments and banking to assist families, teens and adults with securing financial freedom in their lives.
“The festival is about love, togetherness and a celebration of freedom,” Garrison said. “It is open to everyone. We have to remember our past so that we can learn from the good and never repeat the bad. The celebration is not just for the city, parish or state, it is for the world.”
