[Photos] Baltimore’s African American Festival In Photos [Taken By Shae McCoy]

This weekend I got lucky enough to witness so much greatness! I attended Baltimore‘s 40th annual African American Festival. I have attended this festival almost every year since I’ve known about it. Each year it gets better, the people I meet, the performances, and more! I was able to tell the story of the event in photos! I would like to share them with you.
