Sierra Leoneans in the DC metro area gathered at Bus Boys and Poets on K and 5th Street in the nation’s capital to celebrate the connections between African American ‘black loyalist’s and modern day creoles.

The event was organized by Dr Fuambai Sia Ahmadu, founder of the Miss Sierra Leone USA pageant and medical anthropologist.

Former peace corps volunteer and author Kevin Lowther, George Washington University  Professor of History Nemata Blyden, song writer Freddy Cole Shabaka, and poets Natasha Beckley (Miss Sierra Leone 2011), and Akindele Decker were also in attendance.
