No African World Festival Again

Mark Wade is the President of the Board of Directors for the African World Festival. Festival organizers recently announced that this summer's three-day event on Milwaukee's lakefront will not take place; they do plan to hold other events throughout the year, including tomorrow's Celebrating Shades of Black cocktail party and dance at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. Wade tells Mitch Teich that he's optimistic the three-day festival will take place next summer.
