CCCADI will move to its permanent home in a landmark firehouse in East Harlem's 125th Street this Fall. At a time that the 125th corridor, much as many other areas before it, weathers rapid gentrification, our move gives us a space to stand strong for the African Diaspora that has made East Harlem the vibrant and unique area it is today. CCCADI’s firehouse is your firehouse, you home to preserve, protect, and celebrate global afro-descendent culture in NYC and beyond.
The move has been a journey of grit and love. After raising $9 million with city and state support, on September 16, 2014, we broke ground on the highly anticipated historic Firehouse on 125th in East Harlem/El Barrio. From our new headquarters, we will continue celebrating the beautiful traditions of the people of the African Diaspora with a full program of events, education and international exchanges that reflect you and your community.
These are exciting times for CCCADI, as this milestone marks the beginning of a new chapter in our 40-year history, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
