MOJA’s Mojo Gears Up Again, September 29

Exploring Charleston, it’s hard to miss the influence African-American and Caribbean folks have had on the city: witness the distinct Gullah dialect, the basket weavers at the market, and more.  

Every autumn, we celebrate unity within our diverse community with the MOJA (“Moja” is “One” in Swahili Arts Festival. Join in on the 2011 MOJA celebrations!

The popular MOJA Festival returns with music, art, and fun for all.

This year, art exhibitions, dance and drumming demonstrations, jazz nights, African folktale puppet shows, reggae concerts and more will run from Thursday, September 29 to Sunday, October 9. Nearly half of MOJA’s events are free while the remainder range from $5 to $35.

 When MOJA was named one of the Top 20 events in 2011 by the Southeast Tourism Society, Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr. enthused:  “MOJA is one of the most important cultural projects on our arts calendar each year…It provides for all who are touched by its program, moments of repose, contemplation, and introspection- a chance to transcend the busy pace of everyday life.”
