5th Black-Eyed Pea Festival

Omnira Institute

The headliner is the Dynamic Miss Faye Carol with pianist Joe Warner; also MJ's Brass Boppers, a Bay Area band that performs the music of New Orleans 2nd line tradition. Guest vendors include Nanette Harris-Jones, TheArthur Wright and Karin Turner.


This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza had to say about 5th Black-Eyed Pea Festival :

Local soul queen Miss Faye Carol & MJ’s Brass Boppers light up this day celebrating the traditions, music, art, dance and food of the African Diaspora, while chefs serve up menus featuring the namesake legume and soul food staple said to bring good luck. “The black-eyed pea is a metaphor for what is resilient, creative and collaborative about [our] culture,” says festival director Wanda Ravernell.
