Welcome to The Black Market @ Uzazi Village! We are a collective of Black artisans, craftmakers, agrarian stewards, growers and Afro-artists. We will have our foods, crafts and art works available for sale on the first and third Saturdays through October. Our opening day will be July 21st and the market will run from 9am-1pm on market days. There will be activities for the kids, local entertainments, and great deals on locally sourced goods and services.

Volunteers will assist with registration, clue stations and the wrap-up party. Ages 16 and up. The Eric Berry Foundation wants to fill 600 backpacks for kids in need and donate them before the 2018 school year. For its efforts, Uncover KC receives monetary support for its Discovery Education Program, which reached over 8,300 students and completed more than 20,000 service hours in 2017.

At this workshop, we'll focus on male models and discuss what that means for you in Kansas City and beyond. You'll get to learn insights from local models who will share their experience and knowledge with the group.
