Legislator Richberg joins fellow elected officials and community members at the 2021 Ujamaa Fest

Wyandanch, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Jason Richberg was on hand this past weekend at Black Long Island’s fourth annual Ujamaa Fest, which featured approximately 100 vendors, youth entrepreneurs, celebrations of Pan-Africanism, live musical performances, and activities for children and families.
 
 “It was amazing to be a part of Ujamaa Fest, an event I look forward to every year,” said Legislator Richberg. “Seeing the community out in full force supporting our local businesses and lending words of support and encouragement to the young people in attendance was truly inspiring. Thank you to Black Long Island, the Wyandanch Plaza Association, the Albanese Organization and everyone who played a part in bringing this incredible event to the Wyandanch community.”
 
 The annual event, held at Wyandanch Plaza, aims to support Black-owned businesses and organizations from across the tristate area in an effort to “rebuild the economic backbone of black communities on Long Island”. Ujamaa Fest is named after the fourth principle of Kwanzaa, Ujamaa, which means “cooperative economics”.
