African Communities Coalition in Philadelphia (Africom Philly)
Africom Philly was started in 2000, when African immigrant communities came together to form an umbrella organization.

The Philadelphia Mayor's Commission on African and Caribbean Immigrant Affairs came out of AfriCom Philly, so did the many other immigrant organizations. The original movers and shakers in AfriCom were mostly Nigerian.

ACANA is an African immigrant organization that is a member of AfriCom Philly. So are Liberian, Ivorian, Malian, Cameroonian organizations.

We meet at 4020 Market St, West Philadelphia.

Africom started a yearly health fair.The health fair is still going on, the 12th Annual Health Fair is May 20 2012, click here, but it spawned several other health fairs plus a community health organization for immigrants run by Senegalese immigrant.

Africom also started a yearly summer event called Echoes of Africa, which has been taken over by the Mayor's Commission and now once a year, members of African communities are invited to a breakfast and day at the Philadelphia Zoo.

The videos are all made by and about members of African communities in Philadelphia.
