About the African American Day Parade, Inc.
The mission of the AADP is to highlight African American culture, heritage and unity; showcase the best and brightest of the African American community and commemorate the legacy of African American ancestry. The AADP focuses on five basic components that help to strengthen the community: Business, Education, Health, Politics/Government & Arts/Culture. Each year AADP chooses one of these areas as the parade theme and invites those that have contributed to that field to act as our Grand Marshals, Marshals, & Honorary Guests. The 2022 theme is Health.
