Description Just as the DanceAfrica family was growing inside BAM’s opera house over the past 12 years, the DanceAfrica outdoor bazaar had been steadily growing as well. In 1989, the bazaar was offered for a full two days, featuring local chefs, clothing makers, and craftsmen offering authentic African and African-inspired products. This year also brought the return of Côte d'Ivoire’s Les Guirivoires, as well as the introduction of the Brooklyn-based Message from Our Ancestors.
