A Day to Remember

A day to remember, honour and celebrate past community members 

You are invited in the spirit of the ancestors to bid fond farewell to those we lost during the pandemic.

The celebration will include a roll call, drumming to call the ancestors, music and dancing, open mic, poetry of remembrance, an exhibition of community members and sharing of Caribbean cuisine.

If you would like someone to be remembered please call WACA on 01933 222095 or email waca-centre1@mywaca.org.  If you could also contact WACA to let them know you intend to come that would really help to estimate numbers for catering purposes.

Hosted by Wellingborough African Caribbean Association, in partnership with the Black Community Forum (part of Made With Many) and supported by Arts Council England.

Symbolism

Nyame Nwu Na Mawu (immortality)

The symbol is a cross of what looks like two bones. Bones are known to take ages to decompose. Its longevity symbolically alludes to the fact that despite one’s physical absence, parts of them still live on.
