African American Cultural Garden One World Day and Parade of Flags August 28, 2022
The African American Cultural Garden was very busy on One World Day in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. One World Day has been the official event of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation since 1946. Over 40,000 people visited the gardens on One World Day 2022.
A highlight of the African American Cultural Garden unit in the Parade of Flags was the Warrensville Hts Marching Band. The Parade was moderated by TV news personalities Danielle Wiggins (Ch.3), Kelly Dobeck (Ch. 19), Tracy Carloss (Ch. 5) and Maia Belay (Ch. 8). Olympic Gold medalist Dominique Moceanu (Magnificent Seven Gymnastics Team 1996) was the Grand Marshall of the Parade of Flags and she marched with Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb and other dignitaries. Here is a video of the entire Parade of Flags.
After the Parade, large crowds gathered in the African American Cultural Garden to share their culture and heritage. One of the performers in the African-American Cultural Garden was Mr. Kraig Brock who played a steel drum. Kraig is a percussionist, educator, performer and steel panist.
