53rd African American Day Parade

The African American Day Parade, Inc. (AADP) was founded in 1968 by two organizations: Afro-American Day & United Federation of Black Community Organizations. The first meeting was held at 2315 Seventh Avenue in Harlem, NY. The meeting was overseen by community leaders, Livingston Wingate and Conrad Peters. Mr. Wingate served as AADP’s first Chairman. The two men were joined by eleven other community organizers: Jacqueline Peterson, Abdel Krim, Abe Snyder, Cenie J. Williams, Ennis Francis, Joseph Steele, Piankhi Akinbaloye, Bernice Bolar, Adeyemi Oyeilumi, Lloyd Mayo, and Leonard Davis.
OUR MISSION IS TO HIGHLIGHT AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURE, HERITAGE AND UNITY; SHOWCASE THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST OF OUR COMMUNITY AND COMMEMORATE THE LEGACY OF OUR ANCESTORS.
Our 2022 AADP theme is “Good Health is Essential” , honoring individuals that have contributed to the African American community in the field of Health.
