Black History Month celebrated in Cherry Hill

January 31, 2013 by  

February is Black History Month in both the United States and Canada, a month in which the exploits and history of those of African descent are recognized and celebrated. Several cities hold special events to celebrate during the month and Cherry Hill is no different.

The Black History Month Celebration in Cherry Hill is presented by the Cherry Hill African American Civic Association and the Black Broadway Theater Group. It will feature live entertainment and performances, family-friendly activities for all and the 3rd annual Sankofa Marketplace. The Marketplace will feature African American businesses selling such items as jewelry, hair care products, clothing, and food items. It will be a great opportunity for those living in the town to discover new businesses and for those businesses to grow their customer lists.

No doubt many of those businesses planning to take part in the marketplace will be working with Cherry Hill printing companies to prepare for the celebration; such items as banners and signs can be used to highlight their booths, which may very well result in more sales. Organizers of the event will also likely be using banners, signs, posters, and flyers to advertise in the community. Flyers are very effective due to the variety of ways they can be distributed, such as through direct mail or as newspaper inserts. Flyers are also reasonably inexpensive to produce.

The Black History Month Celebration will take place at the Cherry Hill High School East Auditorium in Uptown Cherry Hill on February 2 beginning at 7:00 pm. Admission is free.
