AFRIKIN® (pronounced ah-free-kin) is a platform that curates the arts and culture of people of color, as we advance their ingenuity and promise across the Diaspora.
The term AFRIKIN® is the fusion of two words "Africa (the continent) and Kinship (a sharing of characteristics or origins)". The concept was created as a foundation for people of color to share in our collective and individual experiences around the world, a diverse population of over 2.3 billion people.
AFRIKIN® recognizes that, in our vastness, there is uniqueness to us all, highlighting the experiences of the collective as well as the individual in presenting 'conscious' global content in the arts.
AFRIKIN® presents current culture recognized by our target demographics through AFRIKIN® Art, AFRIKIN® Fashion, AFRIKIN® Talks, food, innovation and performance - ways to experience the lives and perspectives of our brothers and sisters, our AFRIKIN®, across the Diaspora.
Together we work to raise awareness and provide solutions. We inform, empower and inspire people to take the next step to raise the profile of the Diaspora. The transformative effect of creative people on societal progress has been a motivating factor in our programming.
Team AFRIKIN® is a dedicated and accomplished group of fine arts, international relations, live entertainment, marketing and production professionals who together pool their expertise to create cultural events unlike any other. As a leading provider of entertainment in the U.S., our services range from event management to booking first-rate artists and developing effective campaigns.

Through the joint work of families living in extreme hardship and youth volunteers, TECHO seeks to overcome poverty. “Rockers Movement will amplify our message and continue to scream that Miami is committed to overcoming poverty,”
Rockers Movement expresses our hopes and dreams of a world in which what we have in common is far greater than that which divides us. Through their Festivals, we live not by looking at each other but by looking together in the same direction.
Food For The Poor would like to thank Rockers Movement and their supporters for channeling their passion for music to raise awareness about the critical needs of the poor. Your compassion and generosity will help us triumph over hunger. When organizations with a common goal come together to serve, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
The City of Miami takes pleasure in celebrating Rockers movement events that bring together music and food from around the world. We welcome this coming together structured as a Zero Waste Initiative, an act of community consciousness that educates by example, and augmented by the musical power of groups from around the world. It is fitted and appropriate that local officials, on behalf of our residents, pause to hail this festive music event that promotes Reggae's "land & people' heritage.
Music is the fabric of our society and the City of Miami Gardens takes pride in recognizing those initiatives that celebrate and honor the art of music; and Now , Therefor, be it resolved that I, Oliver Gilbert, Mayor of the City of Miami Gardens, Florida along with my colleagues of the City Council, on behalf of the Residents, do hereby commend the Rockers Movement on their significant contributions to the South Florida community and urge all Residents to partake in their events.
Music has always had the power to unite and inspire humanitarianism. "The Miami Reggae Festival takes it to the top, offering the highest quality of performance, political ambience and service to community available anywhere. “Truly international in orientation, there is no other place where one can experience such a rich presentation of the best in music talent. Miami proves again, this time through its Reggae Festival, that it is the place to be for the internationalizing of Caribbean culture.
