Diaspora Diner

The idea for Diaspora Diner was born of a desire to connect more deeply with various iterations on the cultures from which our African ancestors hailed. Founder Krystle Cameron says, “I’ve always found the alchemical nature of African culture both mystifying and empowering; people taken as slaves from the shores of West Africa transformed the food, languages, and landscapes of every country they eventually set foot in. I find comfort and inspiration in being able to trace the recipes, music, and dances of my Southern upbringing all the way back to The Motherland.”

In song, dance, and conversation giving historical-cultural-religious settings to the music, the featured cultural performance ensemble complements the cuisine being served and the the community building being fostered.

Black Coffee Sunday


Be strong. Stay woke.

Black Coffee Sunday


Be strong. Stay woke.

Like church and the club all in one, but no holy water or whiskey—just dope black people and coffee. Really, it was all love. I appreciate it.

Black Coffee sunday

While there is still so much work to do in and for our community, we also need to make room for self-care. We need to carve some time out for #BlackJoy. 

Black Coffee Sunday is a fellowshipping event that offers a space for carefree fun, sharing, networking, and healing. It's  a momentary but necessary reprieve from the struggle. It's to refuel and recharge you, help you meet like-minded kinfolk, and mentally prepare you for a week where you might be one of the few, if not the only, who understands how hard it is to #staywoke.

It's also a damn good excuse to get lit on a Sunday afternoon.
